PREFACE 



The manuscript, known as the Liber de Antiquis Legibus, now deposited 
in the Record Room, Town Clerk'8 Office, at tbe Guildhall of the city of 
London, is a small folio, nine inches and a half in length and seven inches 
in breadth, the binding of white leather, covering wooden backs, and con- 
taining 159 leaves of parchment, paged continuously with Arabic cyphers. 
The index prefixed to the volume indicates the successive chapters which 
it was orig^ally intended should compose the volume ; but the first chapter 
and three others in the body of the manuscript were left blank, though 
sinoe written over by matter of later insertion* The original portion of 
this manuscript will have been written throughout in Latin in the year of 
our Lord 1274, 2 E^ward I., and the remainder added at different intervals 
in French, which later date will also apply to the references in the margins. 
A considerable portion of this volume is fiUed with extracts from the Gesta 
Regum Anglorum of William, the monk of Malmsbury, under titles of the 
writer's own composition. At the top of the page the reverse of folio 63 
conmience the Chronicles of the Mayors and Sheriffs of London and the 
events which occurred in their times, from the year 1188 to the year 1274, 
up to the month of August, the preparations for the coronation of E^ward I., 
who landed at Dover the 2d of that month, being the subject matter of the 
closing paragraphs of this valuable portion of its contents. The title of the 
Book of Ancient Laws is only applicable to the chapters 38 and 44 ; the 
first of which contains the regulations prescribed, by the name of Assise, as 
to the inhabitants of London in respect of their buildings and dwellings, and 
the second the Provisions made by the Lord Henry the King, son of King 
John, and his council, to amend the English laws, of which the larger por- 
don had been ordained in the time of the Earl of Leicester, in the year of 
the Lord 1264, after the battle of Lewes, fought on Wednesday the four- 
teenth day of May. In each instance of the Latin name of the city of Lon- 
don, where written at fiill length in this manuscript, the plural termination

PREPACE. iii 

Mayor of London, who was the first Mayor in the eity, and who continued 
Mayor up to the close of his life, namely, well nigh for twenty-five years. 
The day of the election of the Mayor was on the 28th day of October, the 
feast of St. Simon and Jude, and as he was deceased before the 5th day of 
October 1212, 14th John, it wanted but a few days of the completion of the 
twenty-fifth year of his mayoralty, if elected in 1 187. 

In the Appendix to the Introduction prefixed to the Rotuli CuriaB Regis 
by Sir Francis Palgrave is copy of a deed by which Henry Fitz Ailwin 
grants to William Lafaite the land which Emma, sister of the aforesaid 
William, had held in Lime-street, which lay next the land of the Abbot of 
Ramsey, to be held of him and his heirs by the grantee and his heirs in fief 
and in inheritance for ever at the annual rent of 12e?., for which concession 
the aforesaid William gave to him half a mark of silver by way of boon. 
Witnesses, — Peter son of Alan, Ralph Brand, Jordan son of Sperling, 
Robert the Chamberlain, Jordan son of Jordan. Appendant to this deed 
is a seal of yellow wax, vamished, impressed with the representation of a 
man on horseback, a hawk perched on his fist, with an inscription round its 
circumference, but so defaced as to be illegible, and is now in the Treasury 
of the Exchequer. In the same Appendix is also copy of a convention and 
concord made in the Curia Regis at Westminster on the feast of St. Andrew 
the Apostle, third year of the reign of King Richard, before John Comte of 
Mortain, brother of the King, and before Walter Archbishop of Rouen, then 
Justiciary of England, and Richard Bishop of London, tben Treasurer of 
the Lord the King, and the Barons of the Exchequer, between William son 
of Reiner and Henry his brother, conceming lands in Middlesex and London, 
with these witnesses, — Hugh Bishop of Chester, William Le Mareschal, 
John Le Mareschal, Robert de Witefeld, Roger Fitz Reinfrey, Robert 
Fitz Roger, Osbert Fitz Hervey, Robert Ruffus, Chamberlain of Comte 

stood on the north side of the Church of St Swithin and churchyard, and the advowson 
was appropriated to the manaion, as appears from an inqueet taken after the death of 
Robert Aguylon, hiB deacendant, hereafter cited. This Church of St. Swithin was situate 
at the Bouth-west comer of St. Swithin Vlane, over against London Stone, in Candlewick- 
street, but in Walbrook ward, and from the situation thereof hath been called St Swithin 
in Candlewick-street, but moie f^uently of late St. Swithin London-Stone. At th^^^ 
present time this street goes under the name of Cannon-ttreet. ^ence the appellation '^ 
given to Heary Fitz Aylwin, as beiiig of London Stone, in the Chronicle.

by some trusty senrant of their own, so that they be with the King al

Leiters Close of the King at Reading. Of the third of May foUowing is a 
Letter Close to the sheriff of Southamptonshire, bidding him know that he 
had g^ven to Ralph Le Parmentier, his serjeant, the house which was that 
of Henry Buchard in Winchester, and commanding him to cause seisin 
thereof to be made to the messenger of Ralph, the bearer of these presents, 
and dated from Lambeth. The Roll of Letters Close of the 9th year of 
King John contains several entries as to the performance of his duties in 
attendanoe upon the King down to the month of April 1208, on the 7th 
day of which a Letter Close was sent to the Barons of the Exchequer from 
Gmldford through Ralph Le Parmentier. Of the regnal years in sucoes- 
rion up to ihe 14th year of King John there are no Rolls of Letters Close 
presenredy and from the foUowing entry on that Roll it would seem that he 
had died without issue in the interval : " Rex Hugoni de Nevilla, etc. 
Mandamus vobis quod statim visis litteris istis habere faciatis Willelmo 
Sdssori nostro domum cum pertinentiis que fuit Radulfi Parmentarii in 
Wintonia. Teste Rege apud Lameheth xvi die Maii (1212)." 

In the same year, before the expiration of the term of his mayoralty, 
Henry Fitz Aylwin, the first Lord Mayor of London, was deceased, 
and a successor chosen in the person of Roger Fitz Alan, as we leam from 
the Chronicle pnnted as the text of this publication by the Camden Society, 
page 4. When this event occurred William Aguillun had already made 
fine with the King for the custody and marriage of Joan, the grand- 
daughter and heiress of Henry Fitz Aylwin, widow of Ralph Le Parmentier, 
who after the death of her husband had been placed in the custody of 
WiUiam de Harcourt, Seneschal of William Marshal, Earl of Pembroke. 
On the Roll of Letters Patent of this fourteenth year of King John entry 
18 made as follows : <^ Rex Willehno de Harecurt, etc. Mandamus vobis 
qnod liberetis Willebno Aguillun Johannam que fuit uxor Radulfi le Par- 
mentier, qne est in custodia vestra. £t in hujus rei testimonio has litteras 
noetras patentes vobb mittimus. Teste Willehno Briwerre apud Westmo- 
nasterium v die Octobris.'' On the same day the King sent his Lettera 
Close with the same teste to the Mayor and Sheriffs of London, enjoining 
tfaem that immediately upon view of his letters they take into the King*s 
hand all the lands and rents, with their appurtenances, which Henry Fitz 
Aylwin, Ute Mayor of London, had in London on the day on which he died, 
and that they guard them well. " £t habere faciatis sine dilatione Willehno

ph*nar>' wWtn of all the Unds in hU bailiwick which Ralph Le Parmentier 
had of thc inheritance of Joan, who had been his wife, and then in the 
K infr's hancU ; and in like form was it written to the Sheriff of Norfolk and 
Suffolk. 

On another membrane of the same RoU we read, ^ Rex \lcecomiti Nor-

from Parmentarius to Pelliparius in this entrj identifies the trade of this 
citizen of London to be that of a merchant tailor, in supplying clothes or 
furs for the King's wearing, and the following Letter Close affords proof 
of his being so employed.

The cutter-up of the clothes, the Cissor, corresponding with the tailor 
in its ordinary acceptation, is evidently not identical with the term ^* Par- 
mentarius** or '< Pelliparius," and Du Cange errs in his explanation of the 
word, " Gallis, olim Paramentier, qui hodie Tailleur d*habits." The char- 
ter of Rannulph Earl of Chester granting to the monks of St. Werburgh 
at Chester a fair before the gate of the monastery, cited by this eminent 
glossographer, obviously places the " Parmentarius*' on a level with the 
merchant. " Quapropter prohibeo super amorem meum ut nec mercator, 
nec institor, nec permentarius, nec corvesarius, neo ullus minister volens 
vendere vel emere, non vendat nec emat aliquid alicubi nisi ibi quamdiu

Middlesex. 

On the Roll of Fmes of the fifteenth year of the reign of John, 12 14, is 
a mandate to the Barons of the Exchequer, that of the 800 marks which 
William Aguillun ought to have rendered at the instant term of St. Michael» 
in that jear, he have such respite, namelj, that at the same term he render 
to the lord the King 150 marks, and at Easter next following in the same 
year 150 marks, dated at Southwell, 4 day of Septemher. In the following 
year King John, on the day of the Purification of blessed Mary, embarked 
at Portsmouth, in company with the Queen, and within a few da^rs landed 
at Rochelle with a strong force, and during his stay at Partenay he ad* 
dressed the following Letter Close to Peter des Roches, Bishop of Win- 
chester, one of his vicegerents of the kingdom during his absence : — 

** Rex domino P(etro) Wintoniensi Episcopo, etc. Mandamus yobia

predicti Henrici filii Eilwini tam infra civitatem Londoniarum quam extnu

Eling John retumed to England in the month of October, and was at 
Dartmouth on the 15th day of that month, in the sixteenth year of his 
r&gUj and was residing at the New Temple in London at the date of the 
following Letters Close 2nd of January, 1215, over which the word ^* Pa- 
tentes" is written on the RoU.

This suit was successful, and in the << Testa de Neviir* for the county 
of Southampton, under the heading << Feoda que tenentur de Comite War- 
renne in capite," we read, " Willelmus Agulon tenet Gretham de Comite 
Warrenne pro feodo militis de veteri feoffjBunento, et idem de Rege ; item de 
feodis que tenentur de Radulfo de Clera in Comitatu Suthhantonie." Be- 
fore the 6th day of June, 1222, Alan, son of the Mayor of London, was 
deceased without issue, and his land devolved upon William Aguillim in 
right of his wife, in Edmonton, com. Middlesex, as this record evinoes : 

" De quietancia. Rex Baronibus suis de Scaccario salutem. Quia dilec-

The foUowing entry is on the great Roll of the Exchequer, 18 Hen. III. 
1233-4 : " Surreia. WiUehnus Aguilon, qui habet heredem Bartholomei de 
Cheney in uxorem, debuit unam marcam de scutagio de Kery, sicut supra

By Letter Patent, bearing date at Westminster, 25th day of September, 
1241, King Henry lU. granted to Peter de Savoy the lands of John de 
Warren in Sussex and Surrey, and the honour of L'Aigle, with all its ap- 
purtenanoes, to support himself therewith in his service, during the royal 
pleasure, and during his tenure of these lands in Sussex, this entry was made

PREFACE. XVll 

of Robert Aguilon to his father William Agiiilon, that eminent genealogist, 
Dugdale, writes as follows : << To this William succeeded anoiher William, 
who, in 42 Hen. III., received command to attend the King on Monday 
next preceding the feast of St. John Baptist, well fitted with horse and arms, 
to restrain the incursions of the Welch," citing *< Claus.42 Hen. III. in dorso, 
m. 11." This entry is found on Rot. Claus. 44 Hen. III. m. 11, in dorso, 
and regards Robert Aguilon, who held his manor of Watton-at-Stone bj 
this service ; nor is the error corrected, where other records are cited, but 
every act of Robert is ascribed to a second William Aguilon, and even the 
inquisition post mortem upon Robert Aguilon is ascribed to this imaginary 
Baron. In like manner, in his biography of his father, the same writer, 
after copying Matthew Paris, adds, *' Whereupon the King caused all his 
lands to be seized and given to Simon de Campo-Remigio, quoting Claus. 
17 Joh. m. 6. 5. On membrane 6 the name of Aguilun does not occur, 
but on membrane 5 we read, << Mandatum est Vicecomitibus Norfolcie et 
Suffolcie ' et Essexie,' quod facient habere Simoni de Campo Remigii totam 
terram que fuit Roberti Aguillun cum pertinentiis in balliva sua, quam do- 
minus Rex ei concessit. Apud Storteford xxx die Marcii.'* This entry 
has reference to a Robert Aguillon, son of William Aguillun, who had 
married Agatha, one of the daughters and coheiresses of Fulk de Beaufou, 
Lord of Hokewold and East Herling, com. Norfolk, and of Debenham in 
Suffolk, and of Borley in Essex. His heirs were four daughters, Agatha, 
Isabella, Johanna, and Margeria, of whom Adam de Kokefield, Lucas de 
Po^mings, Ralph Fitz Bemard, and Andrew de Sakevill, were respectively 
the heirs, as appears by a pleading of *' Quare Impedit,' for the advowson 
of the church of Hokewold, of Hillary Term, 7 Edw. UI. 1334. 

In or before ihe year 1257, 41 Hen. lU. Robert Aguilon married Joan 
de Mohun, one of the seven daughters of William de Ferrers, Earl of Derby, 
who succeeded to that title upon the decease of his feither, 22d September 
1247, by his first wife Sibilla, deceased in the lifetime of his father, who was 
sister of the Earls Marshal of Pembroke, and whose issue were heirs to 
that vast inheritance afler the decease of the five brothers without issue, who 
severally bore this title. Afterwards William de Ferrers, Earl of Derby, 
married Margaret, one of the daughters and coheirs of Roger de Quincy, 
Earl of Winchester, by whom he lefi issue two sons, Robert, his successor, 
and William, seated at Groby, com. Leioester. He was deceased 24tb

famous Simon de Montfort, Earl of Leicester. At this time of the succes- 
sion devolving upon the surviving sisters, Maud and Isabella, the others 
being alreadj deceased, partition was made of this inheritance, valued at 
7600/t. Hugh Bigot, Earl of Norfolk, had the Earl Marshalship; and 
William de Valence, husband of Joan de Munchensy, whose brother, John 
de Muncheusy, had died without issue, had the earldom of Pembroke ; Gil- 
bert de Clare, Earl of Gloucester, had for the share of his wife 1520/i., 
whilst the seven coheirs of Sibilla de Ferrers had each 217/i. 2s, lO^J^. and 
ihe three coheirs of £va de Briouze had each 5061L ISs, Ad, Of the last 
named there was another coheir, Isabella, wife of David, son of Leweline 
Prince of Wales, as the following entries on the Fine Rolls of the SOth year 
of Henry III., 1246, prove.

The daughters of William de Ferrers by Sibilla Marshal are enumerated 
in this order in the chronicles of the Abbey of Tintem, according to the 
extract made by Francis Thynne in the Cotton Manuscript Cleopatra C. iii. 
which is apparently of as late date as the reign of Henry the Sixth, and 
printed in the Monasticon by Dugdale. Agnes, the first daughter, was 
married to William de Vescy, of whom John de Vescy, issueless, and Wil- 
liam de Vescy, who had issue John de Vescy, who died before his father,

Alianora and Agatha were both unmanied and in the King*8 custodj at 
the time of the succession of the Earls Marshals devolving upon these co- 
heiresses ; but the former was married to William de Vallibus in the foUow- 
ing regnal jear of Henry III. without the King's licence, who made fine 
with the King for 200 marks for having seisin of the lands hereditarily be- 
longing to her the daughter of William de Ferrers, as one of the heirs of 
Walter Marshal, late Earl of Pembroke. In the same year the King con- 
ceded to William de Ferrers that of 800 marks by which he made fine with 
him because he had married Sibilla his daughter to Francus de Bohun with- 
out his assent and licence that the render should be 20/t. annually until the 
sum was paid. In the same year both William de Ferrers, Earl of Derby, 
and Agpies, his countess, were deceased, and their lands taken into the King's 
hands and committed to custody, as we leara from an entry on the Fine 
RoU, dated at Westminster 26th September 1247 ; and on the lOth of No- 
vember following the King took the homage of William de Ferrers of all 
the lands and tenements which had been those of Agpies, late Countess of 
Derby, of which the Castle of Chartley, com. Stafford, was the chief seat. 
The following entry on the Fine Roll of the d5th year of Henry III., 1251, 
under the heading, '< Pro beredibus W(alteri) Marescalli quondam Comitis 
Pembrochie, et pro Coraite Leycestrie et uxore ejus," is of importance as 
regards the date of the marriage of Robert Aguilon with Joanna de Mohun. 

*^ Mandatum est Baronibus de Scaccario quod in instanti crastino Sancti 
Johannis Baptiste diligenter intendant particioni faciende inter heredes

William de Vallibus was already deceased before the fifth day of Decem- 
ber, 1252, and his widow having remarried Roger de Quincy, Earl of 
Winchester, without the licence and goodwill of the King, her lands were 
taken into the King*s hands and committed to custody up to the date of the 
following entry on the Fine Roll of the year following ; *' Memorandum

From this important record we are able to correct the singular blunders 
of former g^ealogists, and, as being contemporary, it far outweighs the mis- 
statements of the later pleadings. Johanna de Mohun was the widow of 
John de Mohun, who died in his fathers lifetime, leaving a son and heir of 
the same name, who succeeded to his grandfather, Reginald de Mohun, Lord 
of Dunster, deceased 20th Jan., 41 Hen. IIL, 1257, and a second son, 
named Robert de Mohun. In the volume of Parliamentary writs and writs 
of military sunmions of the time of £dward I. during the fiflh year of his 
reign, 20th Nov. 1276— 20th Nov. 1277, p. 202. '*Somerset. West

this Johnde Mohun, are tested at Windsor, 14th July, 7 £dw. I., 1279, and 
by the inquisitions taken thereon it was found that John de Mohun, his son 
and heir, was then of the age of ten years or thereabouts. The name of his 
wife was AUenora, and the several fiefs which were assigned to her in dower 
in the counties of Somerset and Dorset are specified in the same record. 
The service of his mother's share of the inheritance of the £arls Marshala 
had been increased to a sixth part bj reason of the death of Alianora, Coun- 
tess of Winchester, without issue, in the 2nd of £dward the First, when

Devon and Lady of the Isle in addition to the title of Aumale, and died 
21 Edw. I. 1293, haying survived all her issue. After the death of her 
second hushand, assignation of her dower was made to his widow by the 
King of ihese manors, namely Newnham, com. Oxon. of the inheritance 
of Margaret de Reviers, named above, grandmother of the deceased Earl ; 
Pyshoo, in Sawbridgeworth, com. Herts ; Faukeshall, alias South Lambeth, 
now corniptly Vauxhall, com. Surrey ; Christchurch, com. Hants, with 
Freshwater and Wroxhall, in the Isle of Wight ; together with knight's fees 
in the counties of Oxford, Berkshire, Northampton, Bedford, Hertford, 
Cambridge, Norfolk, Suffolk, Kent, and Essex, and the advowsons of the 
churches of Honiton, Buckland, and Walkhampton, in Devonshire. On 
the Roll of the Pleas before the Lord the King in the octaves of St. 
Michael, 51 Hen. III. 1266, Isabella de Fortibus, Countess of Aumale, 
was siunmoned to answer to Margaret de Reviers, Countess of Devon, 
of a plea, wherefore, when the Lord the King long since after the de- 
cease of Baldwin de Reviers, Earl of Devon, late the husband of the 
same Margaret, who held of the Lord the King in capite, to whom 
the custody of the lands and heirs of the same Baldwin belonged, had 
caused to be assigned to the aforesaid Margaret of all the lands and tene- 
ments, fiefs of knights, and advowsons of churches, which had been ihose 
of the aforesaid Baldwin, through a certain and true extent thereof made by 
the precept of the same Lord the King, the reasonable dower of her the 
said Margaret as is the custom, the aforesaid Isabella had deforced her of 
the several knight's fees and advowsons comprised in the assignment, to the 
manifest loss of her the said Margaret ; and therefore the aforesaid Mar- 

with Honiton, Columpton, Bickleigh, BuckUnd, mnd Walkhampton, with their mppurte*

Winchester, Keeper of the Wardrobe of the same Lord the King, to the 
Lord Walter, Archbishop of York, Robert Agidllon, and the rest of the

he had licence to castellate his two mansions of Perching, com. Sussex, and

After the deoease of John Fitz Alan, Earl of Arundel, 18th March 1272, 
Robert Aguilon was made Custos of the Castle of Arundel and of the lands 
of his honour, and so continued to be in the dd year of Edward I., for on 
the Hundred Rolls of that date, under the heading << Civitas Cycestrie," we 
have this finding of the jurors : — ** Dicunt quod Robertus Aguylon, custos 
Ricardi filii et heredis Johannis filii Alani, domini de Ajundello, vi armata 
aliquando cum ccc hominibus, aliquando cum pluribus, approviavit sibi nun-

the same date he had also the wardship of John son of Thomas Malmains, 
who held half a knight*s fee in the parish of Stoke, in the hundred of Hoo, 
of the King in capite, now cormptly called Maamans Hall. Among the 
Placita de quo Warranto tried before the Justices in Eyre at Hertford,

they claimed to have view of frank-pledge in their court of Mitcham of the 
men of the same vill, who ought to come, and so were wont, to the SherifTs 
tum in the hundred of the Lord the King of Brixton, which suits Guy de 
Rocheford long since, at the time when he had the custody of the aforesaid 
men and villages in commission from the Lord Henry the King, father of 
the Lord the now King, who then had that custody by reason of the mi- 
nority of Baldwin of the Isle, deceased, had withdrawn from the same Henry 
the King, father, from his hundred of Brixton. And by what warranty 
they appropriated to themselves free warren in their lands in Adington. 
And by what warranty they had withdrawn from the Lord the King suit of 
the manors of South Lambeth and of Streatham, which they were accus- 
tonied to do to the hundred of Brixton. And Robert and Margaret came 
by their attomey, and as to all the aforesaid suits, warren, and view of frank- 
pledge, they say that they have and hold them in dower of the aforesaid 
Margaret of the dotation of Isabella de Fortibus, Countess of Aumale, with- 
out whom they cannot bring this matter to judgment And her they call 
to warrant, &c. and beg that they may be summoned, &c. Wherefore it 
was enjoined the Sheriff of Dorset that he summon the aforesaid Countess, 
that she be at Sherbome, in the county aforesaid, on the octaves of St. 
Hilary, &c. Afterwards, on that day (20th Jan. 1279), the aforesaid 
Countess came by her attomey and warranted to them, &c. as her dower» 
sapng that she has the aforesaid liberties by hereditary descent, and that 
she and all her ancestors, from the time beyond memory, had used the same 
liberties without any occupation or usurpation made of the same upon the 
Lord the King or any of his ancestors, Kings of England, and this she begs 
may be inquired by the country. Wherefore the Sheriff was enjoined to 
cause 12 men to come before the King at Westminster within three weeks 
from Easter-day, &c., by whom, &c., and that they be those who have no 
affinity to the aforesaid Countess, to make that jury, &c.'* 

Robert Aguillun was also summoned before the Justices in Eyre at 
Winchester, in the county of Southampton, on the octaves of St. Martin, 
8 Edw. I. 1280, to show to the Lord the King by what warranty he took 
fines for breaches of the assize of bread and beer in Warblington, belonging 
to the Crown, without the assent and goodwill, &c. And Robert says that 
his tenements, which he holds now in Warblington, were an escheat of the 
Normans, and that at the time when those tenements were in the hands of 
the Normans they always had and took the aforesaid fines for breach of the

PREFACE. Xli 

•f the Kmg's briefs, plea of wrongful distress, and free gallows in Christ- 
church, and also to take fines for breach of the assise of bread and beer in 
the same vill, &c. And Robert and Margaret came, and, as to the retum 
of briefs, say that they claim nothing on that score, and were therefore to 
be without day as to this head. And as to the other liberties they say that 
they hold the manor of Christchurch in dower of the same M argaret of the 
inheritance of Isabella de Fortibus, Countess of Aumale, with all the afore- 
said liberties annexed to the afbresaid manor, and call the aforesaid Coun- 
tess to warrant the same, who then came upon summons and warranted their 
claim, and says that, as to the franchises last named, she has a free hun- 
dred annexed to the aforesaid manor, and by that warranty she has these 
liberties as belonging to the hundred. So as to this head the aforesaid 
Countess without day, 8cc. And as to the wreck of sea, she says that she 
and all her ancestors, from the time of King Richard and before, had been 
in seisin of having wreck of sea in the aforesaid manor as belonging to the 
same manor, &c. and William de Gisselham, who foUows on thc side of the 
crown, says that she the Countess, nor her anccstors, who had held the 
aforesaid manor, never had wreck of sea in that manor until the time that 
Richard, Earl of Comwall, who had obtained the custody of Baldwin of the 
Isle, father of the aforesaid Countess, from the demise of the Lord King 
Henry, took wreck of sea in the same manor. Wherefore he says that the 
Countess herself, nor any of her ancestors, took nor had wrecks of sea in 
the same manor, except through the occupation, which the aforesaid Rich- 
ard, Earl of Cornwall, had made upon the lord the King, as aforesaid, and 
this he begs on the King^s part that it be inquired into and the Countess 
likewise. \\^erefore inquiry was made, and the jurors chosen for this 
purpose say, upon their oath, that the aforesaid Countess, and all her pre- 
decessors from time beyond memory, always up to the present time had had 
wreck of sea in the manor aforesaid as belonging to the said manor. And 
therefore it was adjudged that the aforesaid Countess thereof should be 
without day in respect of the aforesaid warranty, saving always the King*s 
right, &c. And as to the plea of wrongful distress, the Countess says that, 
as rc^^ds it, she claims nothing beyond what her ancestors had been used 
to do, namely, that when any one of her tenants made complaint of the 
unjust caption and detention of their cattle, her bailiffs, upon such complaint, 
caused the same cattle to be delivered up, and held that plea as to the 
CAMD. soc. g

and on that of the year following is a grant of free-warren, and a weekly 
market on Thursday, and a fair on the vigil, the day, and the morrow of 
St. Michael, at his manor of Bures, com. Suffblk, dated at Westminster, 13th 
day of June, 1271.* Bures is a parish in the hundred of Babergh, Suffolk, 
on the river Stour, and the fair is still kept up, but the day has been altered 
to Holy Thursday, On the Hundred Rolls for this county, Sd Edward I., 
1275, under the heading, '^ Flundredum de Balberg de libertate Sancti Ead- 
raundi," the jurors say that Stephen de Langton had held half a knight'8 
fief in Bures, and Mabilia, his wife, now holds the aforesaid half fief for the 
term of her life of Sir Robert Aguiloun, and the said Robert holds the same 
of the King in capite. The church, dedicated to St. Mary, had been in the 
gift of the alien priory of Stoke by Clare, a cell to the Abbey of Bec in 
Normandy, made denison in after times, until converted into a college for 
secular priests in 1416, by Edmund Mortimer, Earl of March, to which 
this living was appropriated at the time of the dissolution. On the Charter 
Roll 61 Hen. III., 1267, is an inspeximus charter of that King of one by 
Robert Aguylon to Stephen Marshal, of La Wyke, who in considcration of 
an annual rent for his life had relinquished his claim to the manor of Per- 
cings, as appears by this recital : — ^^ Quod quidem manerium dictus Stepha-

made of Trailgi, the land of Earl Godwin in the tenure of Bedling, then held by Wiiliam 
Miles of William de Braiosa, who had seyen hides, which lay in Berts, which William de 
Warren had in his rape. Now Tezelinus was the predeceesor of Bartholomew de Cheney 
in the manor of Addington, com. Surrey, and the manor of Perohing was belonging to his 
daughter, and the hein of Bartholomew de Cheney held the two hagie in Lewes ; henoe 
both will have been derived from this common ancestor. Truleigh, or Truly, is a hamlet 
of Edburton parish, and as it lay in the Till of Berchinges that plaoe will be identical with 
the modem name of this parish. The church of Edburton, dedicated to St. Andrew, paid 
xl shillings pension to the prior of Lewes ; and in the charter of William de Warren, the 
second Earl of Surrey, son of William de Warren, Earl of Surrey, and of Gundreda his 
wife, we read " ad Perching decimam Willekni filii Techelini et Willelmi filii Alfinene et ad 
Folkinges decimam Gh>defridi de Bellomonte.'* William, the son of Tezelin, the Domesday 
tenant in Berchinges, had therefore lands at Perching, and thus the identity is oonfirmed, as 
to its site in Edburton. The benefice is a rectory in the archdeaoonry of Lewes and deanery 
of South Malling, to which it was given by Theobald Archbishop of Ganterbuiy, in 1150, 
and paid a yearly pension of 6«. and 8<f . to the dean. It is now in the gift of the Archbishop 
of Canterbury. From the context of this deed it would seem that the manor of Wiiliam 
de WatOTill had descended to Stephen Marshal, and that it was by this grant that the 
now principal estate in this parish, consisting of Perching and Edburton farms, was united 
In the same poesessor. In the ninth of Edward II. Isabella Bardolf, the daughter and 
heiress of Sir Robert Aguylon, occurs in the Nomina Villarum in this form : " Hundredum

was made by the jurors of the himdred of Paling, in the rape of Arondel, 
who declared that the men of Robert Aguylon had been captored, with their 
dog^, upon the liberty of the Bishop of Chichester at Henfield, by John de 
Boun, and had been incarcerated by the same, namely, in the Castle of 
Lewes, and thereupon the King's writ had been obtained for their deliver- 
ance, and the keeper of the castle aforesaid had denied and refused to deliver 
the said prisoners to the officers of the Sheriff by a preoept of this kind, 
until the Sheriff came in his own person. On the other hand, the jurors of 
the hundred of Avisford brought in verdicts for misdemeanours against 
Richard de Niton and John de Pollingfeud, successively bailiffs of the li- 
berty of Arundel by appointment of Robert Aguylun ; and the jurors of the 
burgh of Arundel declared that the then Sheriff came with the King's brief 
on the evc of AU Saints, to receive the Castle of Arundel by virtue of the 
same brief on behalf of the King, and that John de Pollingfeud detained 
the said castle, and still detains it, in contempt of the King. From a peti- 
tion to Parliament in the 6th year of Edward I., addressed by Robert 
Aguylun to the King and his Council, we leam that, whereas Stephen de 
Pencestre and Robert de Sandwich had been appointed justices to inquire, 
hear, and determine, according to the law and custom of the realm, what 
malefactors had hunted in the free-warren and chace of the Earl of Warren ; 
and he, Robert, and others were indicted therefore, and the justices sent to 
the Sheriff to seize the persons of Robert Aguylon and the others, and to 
place their lands and castles in the King's hands, and this on the first day 
of the inquest, and that he bring their bodies to Kingston, in a different 
county ; on which day those attached put in essoigns, which the justices 
would not allow, but amerced their mainpemors, at their will, against the 
custom of the reahn ; and besides, though their letters patent only gave them 
power to inquire as to the free chase and the injuries done to the men of the 
Earl, they, beyond their authority, inquired and made him answer as to the 
chaces, without inquiry of the Earl of Warren if he had free chace there or 
not ; notwithstanding that he, Robert Aguylun, was ready to aver that his 
people had not hunted save where he and his ancestors were accustomed to 
hunt, and of right ought to hunt, the judges refused to receive the averment, 
and charged the jury to his grievance, of which he prays remedy and of the 
imprisonment he prays remedy, of him and of his people, who are still in 
prison, as it seems to him that imprisonment does not lie in this case.

PREFACE. XWX 

King*s aitorney, William de Heure, and of the said Earl, who gave their 
verdict in favour of the Earl, as Lelonging to the honour and barony of 
Lewes. They found also that in the vill of Adburton as much as was of 
the fief of William de Briouze, and likewise in Lindfield as much as was of 
the fee of the Archbishop of Canterbury, thc aforesaid Earl had not nor 
claims to have chace or warren. So that, with these exceptions, it was 
adjudged that the King should take nothing by his brief, and that John de 
Warren, Earl of Surrey, on this score should be without day. 

On the Hundred Rolls are copies of an inquisition respecting the manor 
of Newenham in the hundred of BuUington, com. Oxon. 7 Edw. L, at tho 
time of its being held in dower of the Countess of Aumale by Sir Robert 
Agulon and Margaret Countess of Devon and of the Isle, his wife, to this 
effect : The jurors say that the manor of Newenham is held of the King in 
capite by serjeanty, as they believed, and the service of the Chamberlain- 
ship, and that for the manor of Newenham and other lands he who is 
lineal heir will have of right the third key of the receipt of the lord the 
King. And they also say that the lord thc King in times of old gavc the 
manor with the appurtenances to Sir William de Courcy, and so the manor 
had desoended from heir to heir, and that Sir Robert Agulun now holds 
the manor in dower with Margery his wife, whom one of the heirs had 
previously espoused. Also the manor has attached to it several franchises, 
namely, view of frankpledge, infangthief, and gallows to cxecute judgment 
upon him who should be taken with stolen goods within the manor ; also 
fines for breaches of the assiseof bread and beer, and for shedding of blood, 
with hue and cry within the manor, and every other franchise save what 
belongs of right to the crown. Also the lord had park and warren and 
the water of the Thames, with the bank from Bunselokc as far as the mill 
of Stokgrave. The jurors also say that Sir William (misprinted Galfri- 
dus) de Courcy, son and heir of William de Courcy, gave to the lord 
Abbot of Abingdon and to thc convent the advowson of thc church of 
Newenham, and two parts of all the tithes of the same manor, exccpt hay, 
and one virgate of land with the appurtcnances, which is callcd La Wikc, 
with the water and the meadow belonging to it, and a certain meadow 
which is called Koumede, from Hockday (thc second Tuesday after Easter) 
until thefeast of St. Peter ad Vincula (1 August), and aftcr that day to rcvert 
to the lord of Newenham. And the lord Abbot was bound to give to

trious family has bcen named abovc, but this manor never dcsccnded to her, 
as hcr mother, Gundrcda de Warrcu» held it in dower during her life, 
which was prolonged beyond that of hcr daughter, as we learn from this 



the nal of the Bithop, in whose diocese the castlo of Coarcy wm situate» and Serlo, abbot 
of St. Evroult, had been conBecrated biahop of that see on the 22nd June, 1001 ; the other 
witnev wat the abbot of Durton-upon-Trent. 

Undcr the rubric ** De deoinu ejuadem ville ^* the narraUvo is thus continucd : ** Non multo 
poat vero tomporo predicttu abbaa cum eodem Willelmo do duabua supraacriptis poroionibua 
deoime lermoncm habuit, et dc quadam piacatione, quo Anglic^ nominatur Sutiswere,

Under the rubrio '* Conflrmatio Rcgis Henrici" we read as foUows: " Henricus Rox 
Anglorum Roberto opiscopo Lincolnio et Willehno vicecomiU de Oxeneforda ct omnihus 
baronibus Francis et Anglis de Oxenefordscira, salutem. Sciatis quod concodo Sancta

Thia royal ooncession ia of earlier date than the batUe of Tenchebray, fought on Satur- 
day, the eve of St Miehael, 1107, when Robert, Duke of Normandy, was made prisoner 
by Waldrio, the King^ cliaplain, qui militibus sociatus in certamine constitit, Chancellor 
of England in 1108, and afterwards ordained Bishop of Laon by Pope Pasclial at Avignon 
in 1109, which diocese he held about three years, up to the 25th April, Friday in Easter 
woek, 1112, whcn he was assassinated in the cloisters of his eathedral. Woodstock, 
Combury and Whichwoo<l were the names of the demesne forests of the King in Oxford« 
shire at the time of the Survey in Domesday, and the park of Combury was doubUess in 
the vicinity of Woodstock. Under the rubrio *' Carta Henrici Regis de diversis rebus quaa

The last mention of Alice de Courcy occurs on the Close RoII 18th 
John 1216, where is a letter to the sheriff of Gloucesterehire, datcd at 
Cirencester, 2nd day of September, letting him know of the King*s grant to 
Alice de Curcy, the wife of Warine Fitzgerald, of the manor of Dumham- 
cnell (Down- Amney) with its appurtenanccs, which had becn that of John 
des Preaux, together with all the chattels which had bcen those of the afore- 
said Warine in the said manor, for her support, and cnjoining him to causc 
hcr to have scisin thercof. Warine Fitzgerold was prcsent at the confer- 
cnce at Runnimede on the 15th day of Junc, 1215, on the side of the 
King, but his name is among those of the barons who swore to obcy the 
mandate of the twenty-five barons chosen as conscrvators of Magna Charta. 
Thc foUowing Lettcr Close fumishes proof of his adherence to the barons, 
and is on the Roll of the seventeenth year of King John, and bears date at 
Rochester, 25th day of Novembcr, 1215.

** Mandatum ett Vicecomiti Sumenete quod &ciat habere Falkesio de 
Breaut£ plenariam Baisinam de manerio de Stokeicurcy cum pertinentiis quod 
contingit uxorem suam, quam habet de dono patris domini Regit. Datum

On the Charter Roll 1 John, 1200, there is a copy of a charter of King 
John dated at Porchester, 98th day of April, in the first year of his reign, 
reciting a conYention made between William de Vemon, Earl of Devon, and 
Hubert de Burgh, the Ktng*8 Chamberlain, in regard of the marriage of 
Joanna, younger daughter of the taid earl, whom the said earl had given to 
be a wife to the aforesaid Hubert at the request and with the goodwill and 
assent of the King. By it the earl asaigned to hi8 eldest bom daughter the 
caput of his honour in Devonshire, with the Castle of Plympton, as hers by 
right of primogeniture, and with a reasonable portion belonging to her of 
his inheritance ; and to Joanna, his younger daughter, the entire Island of 
Wight, and Christchurch, com. Hants, with a reasonable portion belonging 
to her of his inheritance. Then follows this saving ckuse : ** Idem vero 
comes fecit memoratum Hubertum capere homagium baronum et militum 
suomm de Insula salva fidelitate Domini Regis et ipsius Comitis ; salva 
etiam fidelitata heredis masculi, si forte heredem masculum habuerit de 
uxore sua ; salvo etiam dominio et saisina ipsius Comitis in vita sua de om- 
nibus terris et feudis suis. Si vero contingat ipsum comitem heredem mas« 
eulum habere de uxore sua, tunc remanebit eidem Huberto Ix libratas terre 
et feuda decem miiitum in maritagio cum predicta Johanna in loco compe« 
tenti.** This contingency actually occurred, and the birth of his son and 
heir will have been subsequent to this date ; thus proving that the marriage 
with Margaret Fitzgerald subsisted up to the year 1216, as otherwise the 
age of puberty would not have been reached by the husband. The registcr 
of the Abbey of Ford correctly fixes the time of his deoease on the first day of 
September, 1216, loaving an only son, Baldwin ; so that in this space of one 
month and nineteen days, between the Ist of Scptember and 19th of October, 
his widow, Margaret, had been compelled by the mthless tyrant to marry his 
favourite against her will, in her weeds, and without her father'8 consent. 

Within a few months after the accession of Henry III. Warine Fitzgerold 
quitted the party of the Barons, and retumed to his allegiance, as appears 
by these Letters Close on the RoU of the first year of his reign : —

PREFACE. Ivii 

Through thia marrage the manor of Irby and an extensive honour in Lin- 
colnshire, as also the manor of Harewood, com. Ebor., derived from her 
mother, descended in the line of the family of Courcy to the heiress, Alice 
de Curcy, named above. There is also a Letter Close on the same roll to 
this efiect : — 

** De dote. Mandatum est Roberto de Cardinania quod nisi Comes de 
Insula sine dilatione plenariam seisinam faciat Falkesio de Breaut6 et Mar- 
garete uxori ejus de rationabili dote que ipsam Margaretam contingit per 
Baldwinum de Insula, quondam virum ipsius Margarete et filium ipsius 
Comitis, tunc dotem suam eis habere faciat sine dilatione secundum con- 
suetudinem regni Anglie. Et quum, etc. Teste ipso Comite apud Oxoniam 
XX die Februarii." 

William de Vemon, Earl of Devon and the Isle, was deoeased on the 
tenth day of September, 1217, and custody of his lands in Devonshire was 
granted to Henry de Pont Audemer by Letters Close directed to the 
Sheriff of Devon 12th Nov. following, and in other counties to Ralph de 
Wilitona ; and by other Letters Close of the 9th April, 1218, his lands in 
Middlesex and Surrey were committed to Falcasius de Breaut^. In the 
same year he obtained the custody of the infant heir of the Earl of Devon, 
with the castle of Plympton, and also the third penny of the county of 
Devon, as William, Elarl of Devon, had been accustomed to receive it in 
the name of his Earldom, together with the arrears from the time in which 
the custody of the same heir had come into his hand by the King's precept. 
In the course of this second year of Henry III. Warine Fitxgerold was 
deceased before the 27 th May, 1218, on which day the King received the 
homage of Falcasius de Breaut^ of all the land which had been his in the 
several counties named above, being inclusive of the castle of Stokecurcy 
and the fiefs of sixty knights. Eventually, his outrageous conduct in or- 
dering his knigbts, lodged in the castle of Bedford, to seize upon the King'8 
Justioes in Eyre, who in their session at Dunstaple had amerced him for 
divers spoliations, which resulted in the capture and imprisonment of Henry 
de Braybroc in the castle of Bedford, which the garrison refused to deliver 
up to the King, unless they had an order to that effect from their lord, 
caused such indig^ation in the monarch^s breast that not only was the 
castle besieged, but the Archbishop and all the Bishops with lighted candlet 
exconununicated the said Falcasius and all who were in the castle. Siegre

According to Matthew Paris he breathed his last at his manor of Wethers- 
field in Essex, and had interment in the abbey church of Waltham, near 
the sepulchre of his father, leaying his wife surviving, and two sons, Hugh 
and John de Nevill, under age. On the Fine RoU of the SOth year of 
Henry HI. is an entry with the King'8 teste at Woodstock on the 28th day of 
August after his decease, notifying that John de Courtenay, his brother-in- 
law, had made fine with the lord the King for 2500 marks, for having the 
custody of the land which had been that of John de Nevill, and which had 
been in the King*s hand until the full age of the heirs of the same John, 
together with the maniage of the same heirs, and enjoining Henry de 
Wingham, the escheator, that having taken security for the payment of the 
said fine at certain fixed terms,he should cause the same John de Courtenay to 
have full seizin of all the lands with the appurtenances, and of the castle of 
Stokecurcy , which had been those of the aforesaid John de Nevill, and which 
had been in the King's hand. On the RoU of the 48th year of Hen. HI., 
1263, is this entry pro Johanne de Curtenaj. *< R(ex)perdonavit Johanni 
de Curtenay c libras de fine cccclxvi /t. quem fecit cum R(^e) pro custodia 
et maritagio Hugonis filii et heredis Johannis de Neville habenda. £t de 
residuis ccclxvi libris concessit ei quod reddat R(egi) per annum ad scac- 
carium R(egis) xl marcas, &c. donec predicte ccclxvi IL R(egi) persolvantur. 
£t mandatum est Baronibus de Scaccario quod predictum Johannem de 
predictis c li. quietum esse et eidem terminos predictos habere et sic fieri et 
irrotulari faciant. T(este) R(ege) apud Windesoram xxiii die Decembris." 
In the following year the battle of Lewes, fought 15th day of March, placed 
the King in the power of the rebel Simon de Montfort, £arl of Leioester, 
and at the foot of a letter patent committing Dover Castle to the cuotody 
of Henry de Montfort, son of the £arl, with the King*s teste at West- 
minster, 28th day of May, we read in the Roll per Regem et R(obertum) 
Aguilon.* Hugh de Nevill, and his brother John de Nevill, warmly 

* In the Roll of Arms compiled in Ihe reign of Henry III., mccxl — mocxlv, we read, 
** Robert Agulon porte de goules ov ung fleur de lis argent,** and " John de Nevill le For- 
rcstier d*or ung bende de gules, crOiflelles noire.** In the 51 st year of Henry III., 1267, 
Robert Agulon exerctsed the office of Sheriff for the counties of Suasex and Surrey for 
three parts of that year and for the firet quarter of the following year, being also govemor 
of Guildford castle. By Letter Patent, dated at Reading, 5th October, 1267, King 
Henry III. granted to Robert Agulon the land which had bcen that of William Marmion, 
«ituatc at Berwick, a parisli in the hundrcd of Long-bridge, rapc of Pevonsey, com.

* Arnhale, Arnall, otherwise Amold, U a parish in the hundred of Droxtow, com. 
Nottingham, and by oharter, dated at AVinehetter, 4 May, 1204, King John gavc to 
Hugh de Nevill hiii manor of Emhale, with all the soke and all its appurtenance», and 
with the advowson of the church, to hohl of him and his heirs in fcefarm, rc*ndcring thcre- 
from annually ten poundt by tale, payable at thc Exchequcr of London ; namcly, at tho 
Exchequer of St. Micliacl, and doing the service of the fourth part of thc flcf of onc knight 
for all sertice and demand in that behalf. After the dcath of Tlugh de Nevill it wos Iicld 
by Herbert de Nevill, a youngcr son, by the concesnion probably of hiselder brothcr, Jolm 
de Nevill, wbom he •unived. In the Tetta de Nevill is this entry : *^ Herbcrtus de Nevill

per annum x libraa.*^ The following I^ctter Patent, on thc RoII of tbe ninetcenth ycar of 
Henry the Third, fully establishes this seizin in contradiction to Tboroton, who supposed 
that Herbcrt waa a misprint for Hugo. " Rcx liberis hominibus tcncntibus terras dc Hcr-

teen years. Tliis second Robert Walerand was succecded by a brother 
John Walerand, who was deceased without issue in the month of March, 
2 Edw. II., 1309. Both these last possessors were idiots, and though it 
was eventually proved that they had two aunts, both of the name of Alicia, 
of whom onc was abbess of Romsey and the other married to Alan de 
Plugenet, whose son of the same name acquired other manors of his uncle 
Robert Walerand to the exclusion of the heir, and dicd in the lifetime of 
one or othcr of his cousins, 27 Edw. I., 1299, lcaving a son, Alan de Plu- 
genet, who in 2 Edw. II. was declared to be the legitimatc heir of John 
Walerand after a solcmn trial ; yet thc castle and manor of Stokecurcy, 
and all included in the above dictum, except Harham, reverted to the crown, 
and in the following year were granted to Robert Fitzpayne ; whence the 
hamlet of Radway has now the adjunct of Fitzpayne. 

In the second volume of thc Rotuli Hundredorum, p. 38, are inserted 
copies of the inquisitions made before the justices in eyre, in the county of 
Oxford, 39 Hen. III., 1255, of the rights and liberties and other things 
belonging to the King, and as being of earlier date than the marriage of 
Robert Aguilon with Margaret, Countcss of Devon, it would secm that ho 
had acquired that portion of Newnham which had been of the inhcritance of 
Joan de Comhulle, the wife of Hugh de Nevill, some tcn years or more 
previous to this inquiry. The following entries concem this manor, 
according to the verdict of the jurors of Bulenden hundred. " Newenham. 
In Niwenham sunt x hide, quas Baldewinus de Insula qui est in custodia 
domini Regis tenet in capite de domino Rege per servicium unius feodi 
militis, et valet manerium xxx li. Non sequitur hundredum.*' Below fol- 
low the answcrs of the jury to the several heads of inquiry, one of which 
was as to those who had view of frankpledge without warranty, whcre we 
read, " Domina Regina tenet visum franci plegii apud Newenham racione 
warde heredis Baldewini de Ripariis." Agaiu, to the inquiry as to youths 
and girls, who are and ought to be in custody of the lord the King, who have 
them, and through whom, and how much their lands are worth by the year, 
wc have this answer : " Dicunt quod Baldewinus de Insula est in custodia 
domini Regis cum Newcnham quod valet per annum xxx libras, ut supra* 
dictum est, quam wardam domina Regina habet per dominum Regem.'* 
Lastly, to the inquiry as to the religious who had entered upon the fief of 
the lord the King, whereby thc King loses wardship, relief> and tallage, who

The names of the witnesses accord with the testimony of the jurors that 
this gift was made in the year 1241, and it ftumishes direct evidence of one 
of thc numerous false assertions of Matthew Paris, who designates her as 
Countess of the Isle. The Priory of Bishopsgate was a hospital under the 
govcmment of a prior and canons regrulars of the order of St. Augustin, of 
the foundation of Walter Brun, citisen of London, and Sheriff in the year 
1202-8, and of Rohesia his wife, dedicated to the blessed Virgin Mary, in 
the suburb of the city of London without the Bishop's Gate, and usuaUy 
designated St. Mary Spittle. In the deed of foundation there is this men-

the city of London, enjoining him to ascertain bj a jury of citizens of 
London the value of the tenements and rents in the same city, which Ro- 
bert Aguillon, late deceased, had held on the day of his decease, and to 
inquire as to the liberty of the same city, whether it were such as that in 
his ¥rill he could bequeath them to whom he chose, as if they were a chattel, 
or not ; and if they be in the same condition as his other lands and tene- 
ments are without the city, so that they ought to descend to his right heirs 
after his decease, and if he could not transfer them by legacy into the 
hands of others by reason of the aforesaid liberty or otherwise, is dated at 
Woodstock, 9th March, 1286.

years ; and another as to the lands in Edmonton, taken there on Sunday, on 
the feast of the apostles St. Peter and Paul, where she is said to be of full 
age, and are merely repetitions of the inquisitions taken 14 Edw. I. as 
above. The inquisition as to the manor of Crofton taken there on Thursday 
next after the feast of the apostles Pcter and Paul, which was extended

These Letters Close are on the Roll of the 20th year of Edward I., and 
as regards this last acquisition its site appears to have been in the manor 
of Lindfield, hundred of Rushmonden, rape of Pevensey, com. Sussex, 
anciently within the limits of the hundred of Street, rape of Lewes, accord- 
ing to the Nomina Villarum, 9th Edw. 11. 1316, where we read Villata de 
Lyndefeld est Archiepiscopi Cantuarie. Isabelle Bardolf. Prioris Ecclesie 
Christi Cantuarie et Prioris de Lewes. Plumpton, where the inquisition 
was taken, is a parish in the same hundred of Street, and Ditchling is also 
in the same division. 

Of Hugh Bardolf, Baron of Wormegay, com. Norf., we have this descrip- 
tion in the RoU of Caerlaverock, among those of the squadron of Henry de 
Lacy, Earl of Lincohi.

Sussex. Berlyng et Bercamp, xxxiiii/t. xvii*. id, et oh, Summa cxxxv/t. 
xviiii, Vud, oh. quad,* On the Close Roll, d3rd £dw. I. are these entries: 

William the Conqueror, whose immediate deAcendants assumed the local surname from 
this residence, a proof that he was a younger brother of Henry de Ferrariis, baron of 
Ferrieres in Normandy. In 1168, William de Wormegai held in capite of the king four- 
teen knight^s fiefi) and a half, all of whom had been enfeoifed in the time of King Henxy I^ 
ezcept Richard, son of Wace, whom his father had cnfooffed of his demesne afterwards, 
whereof he did the service of the fourtli part of a knight. Of the see of Norwich he also 
held ten knight*s fiefi». The inquisition on the death of Hugh Bardolf describes Wormegey 
cnm membris, Rungeton, Fincham, Stowe et Welle et Quynbcrg as held by barony, and 
the render of eight shilliugs each month towards the custody of the castle of the king at 
Norwich. Of the foundation of the family of Warrcn, was a priory of canons of the order 
of Saint Augustine, dedicatcd to the V irgin Mary, the Holy Cross, and St. John the Evan- 
gelist, who were patrons of the parish church under the invocation of St. Michael, which 
coracy has been dcscribcd by Ecton and Willis as that of the Iloly Cross. Cantlcy and 
Caistor were parcel of the inhcritance of Juliana de Goumay, and Strumpshaw was an 
acquisition from Sir Stephen do Strumpshaw, who in the fourth year of the reign Edw. I., 
1276, enfeoffed William Bardolf and Juliana de Goumay, his wife, of this manor, with its 
appurtenances, and was held of Sir John de Wauton by tbe scrvice of half an ounce of 
silk or muslin annually, or Qd, at Michaclmas. 

• Houghton, near Dunstaple, com. Bedf., Bledlow, Wendover, and Hulcott, com. 
Bucks, and Birling, near Eastboume, com. Sussox, were all of the barony of Goumay, 
and Shelford com. Notts was the caput of the barony of Ralph Hanselyn. The inquett 
taken at Shelford on Friday next before the feast of St. Luke the Evangelist, 16th Oct., 
1304, describes thc lands in Shelford to be held with other lands in divers counties of the 
lord the King in capite by the ser^ice of the moiety of one barony. The same jury say 
that Thomas Bardolf is tbe next hcir of the said Hugh, and is of the age of 22 years and 
more, and that the court then was worth annually xiii». iiiic/. Sum of the whole extent 
z/t. zviii(/. oh. quad. Stoke Bardolf was also part of the same moiety, owing the ser- 
Tice of one knight^s fief, and valued at x\\li. yis. of>. As early as the 8th year of Henry I.« 
1108, the barony of Geoffrey Alselin had been divided between his nephew^s son, Robert 
de Caux, and Geoffrey Ilalselin, his own son, as appears by this entry in Jerbuic 
wapentako containing the amount of land held by each tenant in capite at tliat date, 
Gotton. MS. Claudius C. v. Rodbertus de Chalz et Goffridus Halselinus in Wragebi iiii 
camcatas, et v bovatas et tertiam partem unius bovate. At the time of Domesday surrey, 
Geoffrey Alselin was tenant of Wrawby, and Ralph, his nephew, held it under Geoffrey, as 
alsoof a berewick and soke of this manor in Elsham and Kcttlcby, which descended to their 
heire. In 1131, Ralph Halselin rendcrc<l account of 200 niarks of silver, and une mark of 
gold, for the relief of the land of his fathor, Geoffrey, in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. 
In the last named county Ockbrook was of the inheritance of Ralph Alselin, and was held 
by William and Hugh Bardolf, for half a knight^s fief, as part of the barony of Shelford.

PREFACE. XCVll 

ber deceaae to Thomas Bardolf and his heirs for ever, which manor was 
then held of Lawrence de Huntyngfield, by what service was unknown, and 
worth c s. yearly in all issues, and they state the age of Thomas Bardolf to 
be forty years and more, he being in fact in his forty-first year. 

The jurors on the inquisition taken at Croydon, com. Surrey, on the last 
day of August, 17th £dw. II., found that she had held the manor of 
Adyngton, in the aforesaid county, for the term of her life only, by the 
service of making a certain dish called Maupigernoun at the coronation of 
the lord the King, and that aftor the deccase of the said Isabella it was to 
remain to Thomas Bardolf and his heirs, bv fine thereof levicd in the court 
of the said lord the King by charter of licence betwcon the said Isabella 
Lady Bardolf and Master James de Mohun, to hold of the lord the King 
and his heirs by the service aforesaid. It is evidcnt from the age of Thomas 
Lord Bardolf, severally stated on these inquisitions as of thirty years and 
more, of forty years and more, and fifty years and more, that her successor 
m these manors was her only surviving son and heir Thomas Lord 
Bardolf, and that owing to the decease of William Bardolf her second son 
without issue, such manors as had been settled upon him by the feofment of 
King Edward I., reverted in fee to the Lady Isabella Bardolf, whereupon by 
fine, to which this Master James dc Mohun, probably the son of her moiher 
by her first husband, John de Mohun, was a party, they were resettled upon 
ber eldest son, who by the jurors of the inquisition taken at Lewes is 
described in these words, et dicunt quod predictus Thomas est filius et pro- 
pinquior heres predicte Isabclle de sanguine, et est etatis triginta annorum 
et amplius. On inquisitions of later date, after the failure of the male issue 
of Isabella Lady Bardolf, the charter of Edward I. above recited was pro- 
duced before the jurors, who supposing that the entail had taken effect, they 
^sely describe this elder brother, Thomas Bardolf, to have died without 
issue, and that William Bardolf, his brother, left a son of the name of 
Thomas Bardolf, who was the common ancestor, at variance with the find- 
ings upon these contemporar^' inquisitions, taken immediately after the 
decease of the Lady Isabella Bardolf. 

Thomas Lord Bardolf married a lady of the name of Agnes, whose 
lineage remains unknown, and the assertion of the continuator of Mr. 
Blomfield*8 Essay towards a Topographical History of the County of 
Norfolk, that she was the daughtor of the Lord Grandisson, is contradicted

PREFACE. Cl 

Owing to certain cbarters of feofinent niade in his lifetime by Thonias 
Lord Bardolf, in favour of his sons to the exclusion of his widow's right, the 
latter was obliged to sue them in the King's court, and to demand their 
restitution from tbeir guardian. After a long process, of which record is 
annexed to the inquisitions post mortem, the Earl consented to restore her 
dower upon finding that the King by his brief had upbraided Sir John de 
Stonore, and the other justices of his bcnch, for having delayed to give 
judgment in the suit upon view of his letters patents ; whcreupon, a new 
extent was ordered on her behalf of the nianors so claimed, as specified in 
this writ, of which copies in the same words were addressed to each sheriff 
of the counties wherein the lands were situate. 

" Edwardus, Dei gratia Rex Anglic, Domiuus Hibornie, et Dux Aquitanie, 
Vicecomiti Sussexie, salutem. Cum Agnes que fuit uxor Thome Bardolf 
defuncti, qui de nobis tenuit in capite, nuper petivisset coram justiciariis 
nostris de Banco per breve nostrum versus Johannem filium Thome Bardolf 
et Elizabetham uxorem ejus terciam partem manerii de Plumpton ut dotem 
ipsius Agnetis, que eam contingit de libero tenemento quod fuit predicti 
Thome, quondam viri sui, et iidem Johannes et Elizabetha placitando coram 
justiciariis predictis vocassent inde ad warrantuni Johannem filiuni et heredem 
predicti Thome infra etatem et in custodia Johannis de Warenna comitis 
Surreie, cui custodiam duarum partium terraruni et Uniemcntonmi, que 
fuerunt ejusdem Thome usque ad legittimam etateni heredis predicti com- 
misiraus sub certa forma habendam, existenteni, ideoque comes nomine 
predicti heredis per licenciam curie nostre prefate Agncti predictam dotem 
Buam reddidisset, per quod consideratum est quod eadem Agnes habeat de 
terra predicti heredis in custodia predicti comitis existentis ad valorem dotis 
Bupradicte, sicut per recordum et processum inde habitum que coram nobis 
in canccllaria nostra venire fecinuis, plenius apparet, nos super veruni 
valorem manerii predicti premissa occasione certiorari volentes, tibi pre- 
cipimus quod manerium predictum per sacramentum proborum et legalium 
hominum de balliva tua, per quos rei veritas melius sciri poterit, diligenter 
extendi facias, quantum, videlicot, valeat per annum ut in dominiis, homagiis, 
serviciis, redditibus et aliis exitibus terre juxta verum valorem ejusdeui, et 
extentam inde factam nobis sub sigillo tuo et sigilli^ eorum per quos facta 
fuerit, sine dilatione mittas et hoc breve. Teste meipso apud Croyndon 
primo die Marcii anno regni nosiri quinto." (1 March, 1331.)

PRBFACB. CIX 

Gosforth is the name of two villages in Castle ward» (andentlj in the 
parish of St Nicholas,) Newcastle, now distinguished by the epithets North 
and South, and in the last named yillage is a chapel, whence it may be in- 
ferred that there was here a royal residence in the immediate yicinity of 
that town. In company with the King at Newcastle were the Earls of Lan- 
caster, Pembroke, Arundel, Hereford, Warren, and the Earl Marshall, the 
King*8 brother, also Hugh Despenser, Rog^r Dammory, and Hugh de 
Audley» who were the three heirs of the earldoms of Gloucester and Hert- 
ford, by their marriages with the three sisters of the late Earl, Gilbert de 
Clare. 'the chronicle of Lanercost thus notices the further progress of 
the royal army :" eodem etiam anno, 1319, facta concordia finali, ut crede- 
batur, inter Regem et comitem Lancastrie, intraverunt ambo circa festum 
Assumptionis Virginis gloriose terram Scotie cum magno exercitu, et posue- 
runt se ad invadendum villam Berwici." Upon news of the victory of the 
Scotch army at Myton upon Swale, the siege was raised, and the army dis- 
banded as soon as it was discovered that the enemy had withdrawn into 
Scotland, taking their route by Staynmore, and Gillesland, and the westem 
parts. The Earl of Lancaster and the Earl of Hereford not long after- 
wards were defeated at Boroughbridge on Tuesday 16 March, 1328, when 
the last named was slain and the former made prisoner ; who was subse- 
quently, on the morrow of St. Benedict, 22 March, beheaded on a small 
hill in the vicinity of Pontefract. *' In this year, 15 Ric. II. in Lent, 
Thomas, Earl of five counties, was beheaded, the Earl of Hereford slain 
in battle, and barons and knights killed and put to death afler trial, and 
imprisoned in castles,*' writes our chronicler ; and by the monk of Laner- 
cost he is thus described : << ditior comes mundi, utpote qui quinque habuit 
comitatus, scilicet, Lancastrie, Lincolnie, Salisburie, Leicestrie et Ferrers. 
The manor of Sandal Parva, otherwise Kirk Sandal, was of the lands of 
the Earls Warren ; but in its immediate vicinity is the hamlet of Long 
Sandal, in the parish of Doncaster, which was of the land of the Earl of 
Mortain, and subinfeuded at the time of the survey to Nigel Fossard, and 
of his descendants the family of De Mauley this manor will have been held 
by Sir Gerard Salvin, and by him surrendered to the king. The manor of 
Holton, in the hundred of Bullington, com. Oxon. Eltone in Domesday, 
and then the land of Roger d'Ivry, was subsequently parcel of the Honour 
of St. Walery, which had been given to Richard Earl of Comwall, King

PREFACE. CXV 

The public services of John Lord Bardolf are detailed by Dugdale in his 
Baronage, who, after noticing that he was on the King's service beyond 
8ea in 37 Edw. III. adds ; " but this is all that I have seen of him till his 
death, which hapned 3 Aug. 45 E. III." This observation clearly proves 
that the record he cites, Esc. 45 Edw. III. n. 7, had never been perused by 
this writer, and is in direct contradiction to his next paragraph, which con- 
tains this narrative : — " To whoni succeeded William, his son and heir, then 
xiv years of age, whose wardship and marriage was granted by Queen 
Philippa (wife to King Edward the Third) in 40 Edw. III. unto Sir 
Michael Poynings, Knight, to the intent that he should marry Agnes, 
daughter of the said Michael (Pat. 40 Edw. III. p. 1, m. 37); which 
William, upon proof of his age and doing his homage in 43 Edw. III. had 
livery of his lands. (Rot Claus. 43 Edw. III. m. 14.)" This confusion of 
dates arose from the inquisition post mortem having been calendered as of 
the 43 Edw. III. n. 7, the date of a writ for fresh inquiry, instead of the 
right date of the writ of diem clausit extremum, addressed to Roger de 
Wolforton, the King*s escheator in the counties of Norfolk, SufFolk, Essex, 
and Hertford, which has the King's teste at Westminster, 13th day of 
October, 37th year of his reign, 1363. Pursuant to this writ an inquisition 
was taken at Woodbridge, com. Suff. 18th day of December foUowing, on 
which the finding of the jurors was to this efTect, that John Bardolf of 
Wormegay held on the day on which he died in his demesne as of fee the 
manor of Clopton, with the appurtenances, and 20 li. annual rent from the 
manor of Ilketshall, in the said county of Suffolk, by what service was 
unknown, value xv/i. xix*. ixd, And thcy say that the same John dicd on 
the third day of August last past, and that William, his son, is next heir of 
the same John, and of the age of fourteen years and eleven weeks. Of 
previous date an inquisition was taken at Fyncharo, com. Norf. I4th day 
of December, on which the finding was, that John Bardolf of Wermegay, 
knight, held the manors of Cantley, Strumpshawe, Rungton, and Fyncham, 
with their appurtenances, in the said county, of the lord the King in chief 
by the barony of Bardolf ; Cautiey, xviiii/i. xvi*. xi</. ob. ; Stnimpshaw, 
xii/i. xii5. viiie/. ; Rungeton, xiii/i. vi* viiirf. ; Fyncham, viii/i. The jurors 
also say that the said John held in like manner the manor of Stowe, with 
the appurtenances, in the said county, as parcel of the aforesaid barony, of 
the King in chief, and that the same John Bardolf had granted to the prior

PREFACE. CXXl 

an inquisition was taken before John de Bisshopesthorp, escheator, at 
Croydon, 13th Sept. when it was found that John Lord Bardolf died selsed 
of the manor of Adington, by the service of finding a dish at each coronation 
of a sovereign, to make therein a certain mess called maupy-gemoun ; that 
he hjid died on the fifth day of August, 37 Edw. III. and that William 
Bardolf, his son and next heir, was then of the age of fourteen years, and 
now of the age of twenty years ; that Philippa, late Queen of England, took 

pariih of DuntiBborne, had been given to the abbey of the Holy Trinity of Caen, by King 
WilUam the Conqueror and hia wife Matilda, the founders, by this eharter, of which a 
eopy has been inserted in the cartulary, a MS. in tho Bibliotheque du Roi at Paris, n. 5650, 
foL 17, recto.

Cadomo tenet de Rege Penneberie — in Langetrcu hundred. Ipsa ecclesia tenet Hantone- 
Goda comitissa tenuit T.R.E. Nailsworth is not mentioned, but it was parcel of the 
manor of Hampton, as we leam from this eschoat. Horsley, the parish in which it is 
situate, had been given to the abbey of St. Martin of Troam, of the foundation of Roger 
de Montgomery, Elarl of Salop, by William the Conqueror, which had also been a manor 
belonging to Goda, the sister of King Edward.

PREFACE. CXXV 

inquisition was takcn at Lewcs on the last day but one of the month of 
February, before John Broke, escheator of Surrey and Sussex, on which the 
finding of thc jurors was to this cffect ; that William Bardolf of Wermegay, 
chevaler, held nothing in chief of the lord the King in the county of 
Sussex, but that he held the manor of Portslade of Richard Earl of 
Arundel and Surrey, which manor the Lord La Warre had held of the 
said William by military service, and that the said William held it of the 
aforesaid Earl by the service of ten knight*s fees, which services were 
worth nothing, except after the decease of the tenant of the aforesaid manor, 
and that Thomas Bardolf, his son and next hcir, was sixteen years of age 
on Friday next aflter the feast of St. Thomas the Apostle last past. Another 
inquisition before the same escheator at Jevington, in the same county, 
taken on the second day of April, contains a similar verdict. A third 
inquisition, taken at Croydon, com. Surrey, on the seventh day of the 
month of April, describes him to have held no lands in that county, either 
in demesne or in service of the lord the King in chief, or of any one else ; 
the time of his decease as above.* " Et dicunt quod Thomas Bardolf est 
filius dicti Willelmi et heres ejus propinquior, et fuit etatis sexdecim anno- 
rum tercio kalendas Januarii ultimo preterito.'* Before John Methewold, 
the King's escheator in ihe counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, inquisitions 
were taken at Wormegay on Wednesday and Thursday next afler the feast 
of St. Matthias the Apostle, and on Friday at Whinbergh, 28th Feb., 



* Pumiant to a writ to Robert de Ix>xley, cschoator of the lord the King, in the 
county of Surrey, with the King^s te»te at Westminster, llth Feb. 2 Ric. II. 1379, 
an inquiaition was taken before him at Croydon on Saturday, 7th day of May foilowing, on 
which the jurors declared that it was not to loas or prcjudice of the lord the King, or of 
others, should the King concede to William Bardolf, of Wirmegeye, licence to grant his 
manor of Addington, with the appurtenances, to William Walcote, for tho term of hia life, 
to hold of the King and his heirs, by the service due and accustomed, with remainder after 
the decease of the aforesaid William Walcote to William, son of the aforesaid William 
Bardolf, and to the heirs issuing of the body of the aforesaid William, son of William, 
and in caae of his death without issue remainder over to the heirs of the aforcsaid William 
Bardolf, to be held of the lord the King and his heirs by tho said servico. Et dicunt 
quod manerium predictum tenetur de domino Rego in capite per servicium seijenterie 
coquine, qualiter et quo modo ignorant. Value 66«. Sd. No other lands in the county. 
Hence the finding of the jury at his decease was owing to this manor boing thus alienated 
in his lifetimc, with rcversion to his younger son, William Bardolf.

Johanni de Wjthomewik cierico, ad terminum vite sue/* Its value was 
ISL &s. 4d,f and the age of the heir» Thomas Bardolf, is stated in both in- 
quisitions at seventeen years and more. Before John de Briggeford, 
escheator of the coimties of Nottingham and Derby, inquisition was taken 
at Aylweston, on Monday next before the feast of St. Cuthbert the Bishop, 
19 March, when William Bardolf of Wyrmegey, chevaler, was foimd to have 
died seised of 26s* of annual rent due from free tenants in the soke of Ayl- 
weston, in the county of Derby, as parcel of the Barony of Shelford, in the 
county of Nottingham, <<et dicunt quod idem Willelmus habuit die quo obiit 
servicia sex feodorum et dimidii et quarterii militis in soka predicta, perti- 
nentia ad Baroniam predictam, et dicunt quod idem Willclmus obiit die lune 
proximo ante festum Purificationis Beate Marie ultimo preterito, et quod 
Thomas fiUus predicti Willehni est heres ejus propinquior, et etatis xvii. an-

• The manor of Brattelby, in the hundred of Lawru», parts of Lindsey, Lincolnshire, 
ifl the first named in Domesday, among those belonging to Colsuain, and subsequently to 
Robert de Haia, the owner of Fillingham, and was apparently considerod as tho caput of this 
Honoor. Kicholaa de Haia, the heircss of this family, was tho wife of Gerard de CamTiil, 
whote tenure of this manor is thus set down in the Tcsta de Nevill. Idem Girardus 
tenet de domino Rege feodum unius militis et quartam partem feodi unius militis in Fig- 
lingham, unde I>onu8 Bardolf, qui mortuus est, tenuit feodum unius militis de eo, et 
WillelmuB filius Thome quartam partem feodi unius militis per idem servicium. Idem, 
Oirardus tenet de domino Rege feodum unius militis in Kameringham et in Brotclby. 
Idem, GirarduB habet illud in dominico. The heireas of the family of CamTille, Idonea, 
wmB the wife of William Longespe, who held this Honour 20th Hen. IIL 1235, as we 
leam from the retums of the coUectors of the aid granted in that year to the King, who 
rendered accompt of the assessment in the county of Lincoin, parta of Lindsey, namely, 
Jollan de Nevill and William de Baillol ; iidem reddunt compotum de viii marcis pro 
Willelmo Longa Spata de feodo Nicholae de Haia. Et debet xTi libras de remanente xyi 
feodorum de veteri feofEBmfiento. In the rcign of Edward the Third this Honour eecheated 
to the crown after the decease of Alice de Lacy, the widow of Thomas Earl of Lancaster, 
in 1348 ; but the statement of the jury that it wvm held of Thomas Earl of Chester is 
apparently erroneous, unless a son of that name had been bom of Anne of Bohemia, the 
fiivt wife of Richard the Second, wlio died an infant subse<}uent to this date, and before 
the time of its erection into a Principality, which was heroaftcr, according to an Act of 
Pariiament,2l8t Ric. 11. to serve as the appanage of the futureheir apparent to the throne, 
if God should grant the King this blessing.

• At the time of the Survey undcr William the Conqueror the land of Robert do Vescy 
oomprised a manor in Helpringham, wapentake of Aswardbum, of seven carrucates and 
three bovates. A manor in Caythorp, having ninetcen camicates and two bovates in de- 
metne, and twenty-eight carrucatcs and six bovates of soke geldable. Land to as many 
ploaghs, t. e. forty-eight, to which were adjacent thrco hundreds, Frieaton, Normanton, 
and Willoughby, and in it were two churchcs and two priests, and half a mill, worth ten 
shillings, and eight hundred and eighty acres of meadow. Land in Brandon and 
Rauceby was also soke of this manor, and a half camicate in Swayton was a bcrewick of 
the same. A manor in Steveninge of six bovates, with two salt-pits of two shillings and

but that he had held the advowson of a free chapel in the vili of Watton- 
atte-Stone, worth yearly 4 /e.,* and the advowson of the church of Staple- 
ford, worth yearly 6 li. 13*. 6d. Pursuant to a fifth writ to Robert Sib- 
thorp, escheator in the counties of Surrey and Sussex of the same date, 
inqoisition was taken at Crawley on Monday next after the feast of the 
Holy Trinity, 30th May, 13 Ric. II. which describcs him to have held on 
the day of his decease ten knight*8 fiefs in thc vill of Porteslade of Richard 
Earl of Arundel and Surrcy, which said fiefs Sir John de la Warre, chivaler, 
held of the aforesaid William by the same service, each fee being of the 
aonual value of 5 /i. when it should chance to fall in, and nothing else in 
respect of fiefs and advowsons in thosc counties.f Pursuant to a sixth 
writ, to William Flamavill, escheator of the countics of Warwick and 
Leicester, dated 12th of May, inquisition was taken at Halloughton on 
Tuesday next before the feast of the Holy Trinity, 23rd May, which 
describes him as having died seized of one fief and a half in Billesdon, 

* The chapel of St. Mary, in Watton, callcd NVhcnisted, was of the presentation of the 
Lordfl Bardolf, and on the 18th Jan. 1375, William Lord Bardolf presentcd John Diase- 
ford. 

'f' Portalade, a parish in the hundred of Fishergate, rape of Lcwes, had heen constituted 
the principal seat of the honour, consisting of ten fiefe in Sussex, which was apportioned 
to Reginald de Warren, younger brothcr of William de Warren, third Elari of Surrey, and 
npon the decease of his son and heir Wiiliam de Warren, this inhcritance, together with 
the barony of Wermegay, derived frora her grandmother, Alice de Wermegay, devolved 
upon Beatrix, his only surviving child, then the widow of Doun Bardolf. Not long after 
•he remarried Ilubert de Burgh, the chamberlain of King John, by whom she had sons, 
who died in infancy, and was hersclf deceased before thc close of the year 1214, 16 John. 
Uer son by her first husband was of age and in possession of his patemal inheritanco in 
the foliowing year, but was, it seems, compelled by his step-father to make him a grant of 
the capital manor of Porteslade, with its appendant knight^s fccs, which is enrolled on 
the Pipe Roll of the sccond ycar of Henry III. 1218, under Northamptonshire. Hubort 
de Burgh, created Earl of Kent by Henry III. died at Banstcad in Surrey, 12th May, 
27 Hen. III. 1243, and in the same year William Bardolf had iivery of the honour of 
Wormegay, held by him during life by the courtcsy of England. Uis son and heir John 
de Burgh, who never assumed thc titlc of earl, suceecded to his lands in England, and in 
the Testa de Nevill, under the heading Isti tenent de Honore Warrenne, que cst in manu 
Petri de Sabaudia, we read Johannes de Burgo decem feoda militum in Porteslade de 
eodem Honore, omitting all mention of the mesne tenure of William Bardolf, whose re- 
pretentative was John Lord De la Warre at the time of the caption of this inquiaition.

been conjointly enfcoffed thereof, together with Sir William Bardolf, knight, 
late her husband, for the term of the life of the same Agnes, also of a fee- 
farm rent from Berwick and Wyngeton, worth yearly 13/». 16*. 4rf. Also 
that the said Thomas Mortcmcr had taken all the issues and profits of the 
aboTe from the time of his forfeiturc up to the day of the scntence pro- 
nounced against him in the Parliament last past, and that the reversions of 
the above afler the death of the aforesaid Agnes were belonging to Sir 
Thomas Bardolf of Wermegay, chivaler, son and heir of the aforesaid Wil- 
liam Bardolf. As on the day of the meeting of the Parliament, Sir Thomas 
Mortemer, whose appearance had been required by briefs sent by the Chan- 
cellor of England, directcd to Roger Mortemer, Earl of March, the King^s 
lieutenant in Ireland, or to his deputy, as well as to every sheriff of England» 
which also enjoincd them to seize his person, wherever he might bc, came not 
nor surrendered himsclf pursuant to thcse commands, he was adjudgcd to be 
a traitor, and convicted of all the treasons which the appellants had laid to 
his charge, and all his possessions, which had bcen belonging to him on the 
said ISth day of November, 11 Ric. II. 1387, or since, were declared to 
be forfeited to the King. All the proceedings in this Parliament were 
annulled in the first Parliament of the reign of Henry IV. held at West- 
minster on Monday the fcast of St. Faith the Virgin, 6 Oct. 1399, and all 
those forejudgcd rcstored to their names and iuheritances, or their heirs, if 
deceased in the interval. It is doubtful if Sir Thomas Mortemer survived 
to that time, nor has his lineage been satisfactorily devcloped ; but our 
knowledge that the place of his rctreat was Ireland, and that prior to his 
impeachment he had been a leader of the rebels congregated in the highlands 
of that island, rendcrs it probable that he was of near affinity to the Earl of 
March, who, by marriage with thc heiress of the Earls of Ulster, had large 
estates in Ulster and Connaught. Prior to the 9th January, 4 Hen. IV. 1403, 
he was deceased, as the will of Agnes Lady Bardolf, widow of Sir Thomas 
Mortimer, is of that date, and made during a residence in the dwelling-house 
of Richard de Vere, Earl of Oxford, then a minor, in the parish of St. Augus- 
tine-Papey, in the city of London. Onc of its provisions directs her body 
to be buried in the priory of thc Iloly Trinity without Aldgate, and another 
contains an appointment of Henry Earl of Northumberland, and of her son 
Thomas Lord Bardolf, to be supervisors of the same, thus affording the 
earliest evidence of the intimacv of that ilhistrious nobleman with her

PREFACB. CXXXIX 

after her decease, affords proof that she died in London, and not on her 
joumey. An inquisition taken at Aylesbury, com. Buck. before William 
Bosoun, escheator in the counties of Bedford and Buckingham, on Wednes- 
day next after the feast of the nativity of St. John the Baptist, 27th June, 
1408, describes her to have died seised in Wendover of the dotation of Wil- 
liam Bardolph, chivaler, of ten acres of land, worth yearly 21 5. and of an 
assised rent of 36*. 1 \d. in Wendover, Aston-Clynton, Bledlow, and Huk- 
kote, and of seven hidcs of land in Eyton and Birchemore with their appur- 
tenances in the county of Bedford, together with one knight*s fief and a tenth 
part in Wendover, of which the reversion was belonging after the decease 
of the aforesaid Agncs to Thomas Bardolf, knight, son and heir of the 
aforesaid WilJiam Bardolf, then of the age of 25 years and upwards.* 
Another inquisition, taken at Hertford on Thursday the eve of the feast of 
the Apostles Peter and Paul, 28th June, before John Squyry, escheator of 
ihe county, contains this finding ; that William Bardolf, chivaler, late hus- 
band of Agnes named in the writ, had been seised of the manor of Crowe- 
bergh with its appurtenances in the county aforesaid in his dcmesne as of 
fee, which said William by his certain charter gave and granted the afore- 
said manor with its appurtenances to John Cley clerk, John Grene clerk, 
Robert Alesaundre, and Nicholas Horspath, their heirs and assigns ; and 
after the decease of the said Sir William Bardolf, knight, the said Agnes 
had possession of a third part of the manor aforesaid by writ of dower out 
of the court of Lord Richard, late King of England, of which the reversion 
was belonging to the said feoffees, their heirs and assigns, worth yearly 30*. 
4d. and held of Sir Edward de Benstede, chivaler, by service unknown to 
the jurors.f The like tenure of the manor of Bardolf in Watton-atte-Stone, 

♦ In the Nomina Villarum fop the county of Buckingham, 9 Edw. II. 1316, we read,

Birchmoor was originally a parish, having a church dedicated to 8t. Mary, now destroyed, 
and the chapclry of St. Mary Woburne wos within it, and had bcen appropriated to the 
Abbey of Woburae.

a moiety of the manor of Kingeshall in Clopton, and contains this finding ; 
" et dicunt quod dicta medietas manerii de Kingeshall assignata fuit dicte 
Agneti in dotem, et quod dictum manerium est de tali tenura quod mulieres 
dehent dotari de medietate cjusdem mancrii ex consuetudinc, que consuetudo 
nsitata fuit a tempore cujus memoria non existit."* Another inquisition, 
taken at Shouldham, com. Norf. on Wednesday next after the feast of the 
Apostles Peter and Paul, 4th July, describes her to have died seized of the 
manore of Wermegay, Stow Bardolf, Fareswell manor in Fincham, Cante- 
ley, and Strumpshaw, with their appurtcnances, of the inheritance of Sir 
Thomas Bardolf, knight, son and heir of William Bardolf, chivaler, late 
the husband of the said Agnes, ex assignacione domini Ricardi nuper Regis 
Anglie secundi in cancellaria sua ; as also of the manor of North Rungton 
by grant of the feoffees named above, bearing date 20th March, llth Ric. 
II. 1388, and of a third part of thc manor of Castre in Flegg, near Yar- 
mouth, of which the reversion was bclonging to her second son, Sir William 
Bardolf, knight. The knight*s fees and advowsons in this county assigned 
to her are also set down, the latter comprising those of the priory of Wor- 
megay, and of the churches of Westbrigg, Wynberg, Garveston, Canteleye, 
and ^Jorth Rungton ; f and in Lincolnshire a third part of the manor of 
Rusking^on was also of her dower. 

* The name of Kingeshalle, attached to this manor, proves it to have been of ancient 
demesne, and probably a royal rcsidencc prior to the exchange at the time it wa» in the 
King*8 hands. 

f The priory of Wormegay, or Wermegay, waa of the ordcr of St. Augustin for Dlack 
Canons, and dedicated to the Virgin Mary, the Iloly Cross, and St. John the Evangelist, of 
the foundation of eithcrRcginald de Warren orof hia son William de Warren ; there being 
no existing record of its first cndo\nncnt, and totally omitte<l by Dugdalc in hw Monasticon. 
It stood in a close, opposite to the castlc of Wormcgay on thc lcft han<l as you cntcr thc vil- 
lage from the east, thc priory bcing on thc north sidc, an<l thc castle on thc south. Thc 
parish church of Wormcgay, dedicatc<l to St. Michael, stands ncar a milc cast of thc village, 
and had been appropriated to the priorj' from thc carlicst timcs. This parish is in the 
hundred of Clacklose and half, as is also West Briggs, which ailjoins it ; to thc church of 
which village, dedicatcd to St. Botolph, Sir Thomas Mortimcr presentcd John Walton in 
1397. Whinburgh is a parish in Mitford hun<lred an<l half, to thc church of which vil-

of May, 1405, contains the earliest notice of his defection : — << d*autre part, 
notre tres redoute et soverein scigncur, plese vous savoir que a la reception 
de les susdites voz lettres nous n*avions receu novelles autres que nous 
n^escrivlsmes devers vous pardevant ; mais tot aprez reportez nous estoit 
tant par aucuns du conseil de Monseigneur Johan, votrc fitz, come par 
aatres dignes de foy, coment le Sire de Bardolf se transporta privement ja 
tarde vers les parties du Northe, ses manoirs et places tout desolees et les 
biens et chateux d'iceux emportez, dount nous nous mcrvcillons grandcmcnt, 
pnisque, come nous pcnsons, il avoit en commandement de part vous dc soy 
transporter a present en vostre compagnie es parties de (jales pur ceste 
foiz." Thereupon the King moved towards the north, and when at Derby 
wrotc, on the 28th day of May following, to his council in these terms ; 
" Reverents peres en Dieu et treschiers et foiaulx. Nous vous salvons 
souvent, et pensons bien qu'il cst venuz ja tarde a votre notice commcnt le 
Conte de Northumberland, le Conte Marischal, ct le Sire de Bardolf, et 
antres de leur adhercntz es parties del Northc, se sont levez encontre nostre 
mageste roiale, et coment lc dit Conte Mareschal tient le champe ovec toute 
le povoir qu'il a et puet lever de notre peuple en le pays sur son chemyn, 
pluseurs maugre leur." Thc first assembly of the forces of the insurgents 
took place at Topcliff, Northallerton, and Cleaveland, under thcsc lcaders, 
Sir John Fauconberg, Sir Ualph Hastings, Sir John Fitz-Randolf, and Sir 
John Colvyle of the Dale, chivalers, who, prior to the date of this letter, 
had been routed and put to flight and made prisoners by the royal forces 
under Prince John of Lancaster, the Earl of Westmoreland, the Lord Fitz- 
hugh, and others. The ncxt assembly is that alluded to in the Kiug's 
letter under the Archbishop of York, the Earl Marshal and of Nottingham, 
Sir William Plumpton, Sir Uobert Lamplugh, and Sir Robcrt Persay, 
chivalers, at Shipton on the Moor, a hamlet in the parish of Overton, 
within the forest of Galtres, where, on the 29th day of May, these several 
leaders were made prisoners through treachery. Upon thc receipt of intel- 
ligence of this disaster, the Earl of Northumberland and Lord Bardolf 
retreated into Scotland, and before the scoond day of July the castles of 
Prudhoe and Warkworth had been yielded up to the King. For this mis- 
conduct, in thc Parliament begun at Westminster Ist March, 7 Hen. IV. 
1406, and finished at thc 5*ame place 2i2nd Dcc. 8 Hen. IV. Thomas

depuis* £t que notre dit Sire le Roy ait aoxi la forfoiture de toutz les 
biens et chateux, queux furent as ditz Henry de Percy et Thomas Bardolf, 
ou Tautre d*eux, le dit sisme jour de May, ou depuis." In the following 
year a servant of Lord Bardolf, named John, was taken with letters, and 
arrested and committed in charge to the Lord de Grey, in whose custody 
he remained from the 6th day of July up to the 20th day of February, for 
230 days. In this interval of time, early in the year 1408, the Earl and 
Lord Bardolf, deceived by false intelligence, entered Northumberland, and, 
having been joined by several of the adherents of the Earl, advanced 
forward into Yorkshire. At Thirsk they published a manifesto containing 
the reason of their being in arms, and at Knaresborough were joined by 
Sir Nicholas Tempest, whence they continued their route through Wetherby, 
over Bramham Moor, in the direction of Hazlewood, where they were en- 
oountered by the forces under the command of Sir Thomas Rokeby, sheriff 
of Yorkshire, whom they had supposed to be friendly to their cause.* On 
the field of battle, fought on the 19th day of February, Sunday next after 
the feast of St. Valentine, the Eiarl of Northumberland was slain, and Lord 
Bardolf so severely wounded that he expired beforc the midnight hour had 
passed, a prisoner in the hands of the victors. According to the sentence 
above recorded, the heads of these noblemen were scvered from their bodies, 
and the remaining portions of the headless trunks divided into four parts. 
On the Close Roll of the 9th year of Henry IV., under the heading " De 
capitibus et quarteriis Henrici Percy, nuper comitis Northumbrie, et 
domini de Bardolf, super pontem Londoniarum ponendis,'* we read as 
follows ; — 

• Thi8 i» the account fumished by the Scoti-chronicon of Fordun, who was apparently 
a beiiever in the report that Richard the Second wa» alive and then a fugitive in Scotland, 
aK he declares that many from England in those days fled from the court of Henry the 
Fourth and came into Scotland to King Richard, and among them Henry Percy the eider, 
with his grandson Henry the younger, the Lord Bardolf, and two WeUh biahops — 
namely, Griffin Bishop of Bangor, and David BLshop of St. Anaph, and the Abbot of 
Welbcck. He alao describes Sir Thomaa Rokeby erroneoualy as a certain Richard Rukby, 
a vasaal of the Earl of Northumberland, and hence a certain degree of discredit attaches 
to his story of the enterprise having been prompted by his treacherous advice. It is 
abflurd to suppose that King Henry IV. would have appointed any of the liegomen of the 
Elarl of Northumberland to the post of sheriif, whose treason dated from an earlier period 
than the year he was in oflice.

Dineteen and more^ and the aforesaid Joan, aged eighteen and more, were his 
daughters and next heirs ; value of the manor 20 /t., and no other lands held 
bj him in that county. Another inquisition was taken at Uckfield, on 
Satnrday next after the feast of AU Saints, 10 Hen. IV. Srd Nov., before 
Robert Oxenbrugge, King's escheator in Sussex, on which the several 
tennres of the manors of Qarcomb and Plumpton are deduced in like 
manner, setting forth the fines and charters under which they were 
respectiyelj held by the deceased, and the names and ages of the heirs as 
above, which manors were held of Thomas Earl of Arundel, as of the 
barony of Lewes, by military service, both being worth forty marks 
yearly. A third was taken at Oxford, on the Ist Oct., 10 Henry IV, 
before Robert James, the escheator of that county, as to the manor of 
Holton, which was acquired under the grant of King Edward II., and 
which had been held by the deceased of the Prince of Wales, as of the 
honour of St. Valery, by the service of a rent of one penny yearly, and 
worth ten pounds. The inquisition as to the manor of Halloughton, com, 
Leic, was taken on Thursday next before the feast of St. Michael, 27th 
Sept., 9 Hen. IV. before Alvered Trussell, the King*s escheator, on which 
we have this finding : " dicunt super sacramentum suum quod Dominus 
Henricus, nuper Rex Anglie, Dux Normannie et Aquitanie et Comes 
Andegavie, per litteras suas patentes juratoribus predictis ostensas dedit 
maneriimi de Halloughton cum pertinentiis cuidam Thome Bardolf et here- 
dibus suis, qui exirent de corpore filie Radulfi Hanselyn, que quidem filia 
nominabatur Rosa, per nomen tocius terre que fuit de hereditate Radulfi 
Hanselyn, avi predicte filie, videlicet, illam terram, que fuit escacta prefati 
nuper Regis et sibi remansit donanda per judicium curie sue." From 
these parties, who held this manor by virtue of this gift, the pedigree is 
deduced as in the former inquisitions, and its value put down at fifteen 
marks. In like manner, upon thc inquisition taken at Shelford on Monday 
next after tbe feast of tbe Exaltation of the Holy Cross, 17th Sept. 1408, 
before Robert Twyford, escheator of the county of Nottingham, King 
Henry the Second is stated to have given the manors of Shelford and 
Stokebardolf to the same ancestor of the deceased, and from him the 

stands printcd in the Ipodigma NeustriiB of WalAingham, which error has been blindly 
foUowed by every modem writer, and doubtleee aroAe firom a miaconception that the 
Arabic number 11 waA tbe Roman numcral II.

of Hoxne, Suffolk. As their father only attained his majority in the former 
year, his death will have occurred in the twenty-eighth year of his age. 
Prior to this restitution the honour of Wennegay had heen granted to 
Thomas Beaufort, the King's hrother, created Duke of Exeter, 18 Nov. 
1416, Bradwell to John, the King's son, the manor of Berling to Joan. 
Queen of England, his consort, and others in Norfolk, Suffolk, and Sussex, 
to Sir William Bardolf, knight, brother of the attainted Lord Bardolf, for 
the terms of their lives only, with reversion to the King and his heirs. 
The remaining portion of these forfeited lands, with the reversion of such 
as had been granted, were, by letters patent, dated at Westminster, 19th 
day of July, 9 Henry IV. 1408, confirmed to Sir William Clifford, knight, 
and Anne his wife, and to William Phelipp and Joan his wife, for the whole 
of their lives, and the life of the longer liver, and to the heirs issuing of 
their bodies, with reversion in default of issue to the King and his heirs. 
Sir William Clifford, knight, was second son of Rogcr Lord Clifford of 
Westmoreland, younger brother of Thomas Lord Clifford, and had been 
govemor of Alnwick Castle, which he surrendered to the King after the 
flight of the Earl of Northumberland into Scotland, as also of Berwick, and 
Fastcastle in Wales, on behalf of the same Earl and his son Henry Percy. 
In the 4 Henry V. 1417, he was constable of Bordeaux, but was deceased 
without issue on Friday, the Feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed 
Virgin, 25 March, 1418, and on the inquisitions subsequent to his decease 
his heir was found to be John Lord Clifford, namely, son of Thomas Clif- 
ford, brother of the aforesaid William, then of the age of twenty-six years 
and upwards. Pursuant to a writ with the teste of John Duke of Bedford, 
Guardian of England, at Westminster, 28th Oct., 6th Hen. V., 1418, an 
inquisition was taken at Navenby before John Henege, the King*s escheator 
m Lincolnshire, on Monday, in the fifth week of Lent, 3rd April, 7th Hen. 
V. 1419, which describes him to have held on the day of his decease, con- 
jointly with Anne late wife of him William Clifford, William Phelipp che- 
valer, and Joan his wife, still surviving, the manor of Cathorpe, together 
with the vills of Frieston, Normanton, Sudbroke, Wolughby, and a moiety 
of Ancaster, as also the manor of Westborough, together with the vills of 
Doddington and Stubton, and the knight*s fees and advowsons belonging 
to the same, of the gift and concession of the lord Henry late King of 
England, father of the lord the now King, to the aforesaid William Clifford,

*<his mo8t dear consort Joan, Queen of England," after the attainder of 
Thomas Lord Bardolf, to hold for the term of her life in part of the deduc- 
tion of 10,000 marks annually by him granted to his same consort in lieu 
of her dower, and hence the reversion was all that these parties then had 
until her decease at Havering in the Bower in Essex, on the lOth daj of 
Julj, 15 Hen. VI. 1237. In like manner the honour and manor of Wor- 
megay, together with Stowe-Bardolf, North Rungton, and Fareswell manor 
in Fyncham had been granted by Henry IV. to Thomas Beaufort, Duke of 
Exeter, and to the heirs of his body, who died without issue 27th Dec. 
1426, when they reverted to the then King. 

During the time of Henry the Fiflh, Avicia, Lady Bardolf, was also 
deceased on the first day of July, in the ninth year of his reign, 1421, 
wherefore, pursuant to a writ with the teste of John Duke of Bedford, 
Guardian of England, at Westminster, Ist Oct. following, an inquisition 
was taken before William de Loxham, the escheator of Norfolk and Suf- 
folk, at Bungay in the last named county, on Tuesday, the feast of the 
Apostles St. Simon and Jude, 28th Oct. 1421, which describes her to 
have died seized of the manor in llketishale, called Bardolfes-Hall, held of 
the King in chief by the service of half a knight*s fee, and other tenements 
in the same vill, called Mendham Fee, held of the Earl Marshal, John de 
Mowbray, and embodies this finding of the jurors as to her heirs ; " Dicunt 
quod predicta Avicia obiit primo die Julii ultimo preterito, et quod Anna 
nuper uxor Willelrai Clifford militis defuncti, et Johanna nunc uxor Wil- 
lelmi Phelipp militis, filie dicte Avicie, sunt heredes ejusdem Avicie propin- 
quiores.** 

The family of Phelipp was seated at Dennington, a parish in the hundred 
of Hoxne, com. Suffolk, and Sir William Phelipp, knight, and Juliana, his 
wife, daughter of Sir Robert Erpingham of Erpingham in the hundred of 
South Erpingham, com. Norf. by deed, in the year 1387, settled the manor 
of Colby, a parish adjacent to Erpingham, on Sir Simon Felbrigg, knight, 
for the term of the life of the said Juliana, which had doubtless been 
assigned to her in frankmarriage. The issue of this marriage were two 
sons and a daughter, Sir William named above, bom in 1383, Sir John 
Phelipp, knight, deceased at Harfleur on thc second day of September, 
3 Hen. V. from the effects of dysentery, which committed such ravaget

Robert Hemnale, Jacob Denys, William Kemston, Lances viii. and 
Archers xxix" is inscribed. Agaiu, in 1419 he was serving with the army 
in France, and was appointed a commissioner to treat of peace, together 
with Sir John Tiptoft. In reward of his services he was elected a Knight 
of the Garter in his absence, and by proxy installed in the place of Sir John 
Blount, chivaler, slain before Rouen, early in the month ef November, 
1418, in the course of that year. In 9 Hen. V. 1421-2, he was Captain of 
Harfleur, and subsequently Treasurer of the Household ; by virtue of which 
office he had the chief conduct of the funeral of that illustrious monarch 
and charge of his efifects afler his decease. 

In the following reign, 8 Hen. VI., 1430, he was retained to serve the 
king with nineteeu men-at-arms, besides himself, and sixty archers, for one 
whole year, in the wars of France ; and by letters patent, with the teste 
of Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, Guardian of England, at Wye, in Kent, 
24th April, he was appointed, along with the Bishops of Ely and Bath 
and Wells, Sirs John Tiptofb, Lewis Robessart, John Montgomery, John 
Steuard, Robert Shotcsbroke, and Ralph Boteler, knights, and others, to 
review the troops which were then about to cross the sea towards the realm 
of France, under the royal banner. On his retum from abroad he was 
admitted of the privy council, and, as we leam from an entry on the Roll 
of Parliament, containing the annual charges on the revenue of the crown, 
payable in Michaelmas term, 12 Hen. VI., 1433, during the King's plea- 
sure, the fee for his attendance amounted to 100/». In the foUowing year, 
he was appointed to the high office of Chamberlain to the King ; and he is 

abbeys of Fontevraud and the Holy Trinity of Caen, granted by the Sovereign ; but he 
had nothing of hia own inheritance, — a proof that he was the younger brother, and conae- 
quently not more than thirty years old at the time of his decease. Alice, his widow, 
remarried, first, Thomas de Montacute, Earl of Salisbury, K.Q. slain 3 Nov. 7 Hen. VI. 
1428 ; and, socondly, Wiliiam de la Pole, Earl of Suffolk, afterwards Marquisand Duke of 
Suffolk, K.G. murdered on the 2nd of May, 28 Hen. VI. 1460.

ffir John Howard, knight, liviDg 8th July, 1410, deceased on the Idth day 
of Decemher, 3 Hen. VI., 1424, leaving hy her first hushand an only 
daughter and heiress, hom on the feast of St. Bamahas, llth June, 1410, 
and then of the age of fourteen years and upwards. This heiress married 
John de Vere, Earl of Oxford, and through her the ancient patrimony of 
the Howards in Norfolk vested in that family. Sir Thomas and his two 
wives had interment in Norwich cathedral, on the north side of the choir ; 
hut the word *• Bewar" is all that remains of the inscription, — perhaps his 
motto. His arais, Vert, an escutcheon inter eight martlets gules, and under- 
written Thomas Erpingham, were formerly in the chapter-house at Canter- 
hury ; and his crest was, A crown gules, a plume of feathers argent. 

On the Roll of Letters Patent of the 15th year of Henry the Sixth, 
1437, under the heading, " Pro cantaria fundanda Phelippes,*' we read as 
foUows : — 

^ Rex omnihus ad quos, &c., salutem. Sciatis quod nos de grada nostra 
speciaU concessimus ct licenciam dedimus pro nohis et heredihus nostris, 
quantum in nohis est, dilecto et fideli nostro Willelmo Phelipp militi et 
Johanne uxori ejus quod ipsi et uterque eormn qui supervixerit et eorum

Swaffham, com. Norff., as to two parts, for the same term, at a rent of one 
pound annually, of whicb the third part was held in dower by Jacquetta, 
late wife of the uncle of the King, John Duke of Bedford. On the Roll of 
Letters Patent of the same year, we read as follows : — " Rex, <JCrc. salutem. 
Sciatis quod pro bono et gratuito scrricio quod dilectus et fidelis noster 
Willebnus Phelipp, camerarius noster, nobis impendit et impendet in 
futurum concessimus ei quoddam tenementum, vocatum Le Newe Inn, cum

nostram Londoniarum, quod quidem tenementum ad manus avi nostri per 
foris&cturam Johannis Montagu, comitis Sarum, devenit et escaetum fuit ; 
et quod Thomas Erpingbam cbevaler defunctus pro termino vitcsue ex

* Punuant to a \^Tit addressed to Henry Barton, mayor of the city of London, and the 
KSng*8 escheator in the same, with the King^s teste at Westminster, Ist Nov., 7 Hen. VI., 
1428, the following inquisition was taken respecting the tenure of Sir Thomas Erping- 
ham of this meseuage, in the city of London, 4th day of October, 8 Hen. VI., 1429, by 
the oath of twelve jurors, honest and lawwortliy men of the said city : — ** Qui dicunt super

Rege die quo idem Thomas Erpyngham obiit unum hospicium cum una shopa eidcm hos-

in civitate domini Regis predicti, quod quidem hospicium cum shopa et aliis pertinentiis 
Buis dictus Thomas habuit de dono domini Henrici nuper Regis Anglie, avi domini Regis 
nunc, ad terminum vite ii^ius Thome Erpyngham, et quod idem hospitium cum pertinentiia 
valet per annum ultra reprisas, si locaretur, Ix^., et dicta shopa valet per annum ultra 
reprisas vi«. Yuid. Dicunt tamen iidem juratores quod dictum hospicium cum pertinen- 
tiis stetit vacuum a quarto die Julii anno regni domini Regis nunc sexto, quo die dictus 
Thomas obiit usque ad festum Nativitatis sancti Johannis Baptiste tunc proximo sequens, 
ad quod festum Willelmus Phelipp, chivaler, dictum hospicium cum shopa et aliis perti- 
nentiis intravit et occupavit et adhuc occupat, eo quod idem Willelmus Phelipp habuit et 
habet dictum hospicium cum shopa at aliis pertinentiis suui per litteras patenti^fi Domini 
Regis nunc ; sed quem statum inde habet juratores predicti penitus ignorant. Et dicunt 
quod dictum hospicium cum pertinentiis suis tenetur de domino Rege in lihero burgagio 
sicut tota civitas Londoniarum tenetur ; sed per quod servicium dicti juratores penitus 
ignorant. Dicunt ulterius iidem juratores quod non est aliquis hcres ipsius Thome

On the same Roll are Letters Patent of the date of the eleventh day of 
the same month, which contain a similar recital of a grant of the custody 
of the honour and manor of Wyrmegay, made to the same William de la 
Pole, Earl of Suffolk, dated the 15th day of July, in the fifteenth year of 
Henry VI., to hold from the feast of the Nativity of the Lord next follow- 
ing, for the term of seven years, and of his having delivered the same into* 
the Chancery to be cancelled ; by reason whereof the King then granted 
the said honour and manor of Wyrmegay to Sir William Phelipp, knighty 
and Joan his wife, and to the heirs of their bodies.* 

By other Letters Patent, with the King*s teste at Westminster, 31 
January following, reciting the grant of Henry the Fourth, dated 19th

PREFACB. CIZV 

Et insuper de uberiori gratia nostra et ex mero motu concessimas prefate 
Anne, Willelmo Phelipp, et Johanne manerium de Castre cum pertinentiis in 
oomitatu Norffolcie et roanerium de Clopton cum pertinentiis in comitatu 
Suffolcie, que nuper fuerunt Willelmi Bardolf militis, fratris predicti Thome 
nuper domini de Bardolf, Habendum et tenendum maneria illa cum perti- 
nentiis una cum feodis militum, dc, eisdem Anne, Willehno PheUpp, et 
Johanne et heredibus de corporibus eorumdem Willelmi et Johanne exeun- 
tibus, de nobis et heredibus nostris predictis per servicia inde debita et 
consueta imperpetuum, eo quod expressa mencio de vero valore annuo 
maneriorum- predictorum cum pertinentiis ac aliorum premissorum seu de 
aliis donis et concessionibus eisdem Anne, Willelmo Phehpp, et Johanne seu 
eorum alicui per nos seu aliquem progenitorum nostrorum ante hec tempora 
factis in presentibus facta non existit, non obstante. In cujus rei, &c. 
Teste Rege apud Westmonasterium decimo die Marcii. Per ipsum Regem." 

Thus restored to the entire inheritance of his wife, William Phelipp, Lord 
Bardolf, will have sat in the Parliament held at Westminster on the 
morrow of St. Martin, 12th Nov., 18th Hen. VI., 1439, to which an 
apparently imperfect list of the peers summoned remains on record on the 
Close RoU, and the oraission of the name of William Phelipp, Lord Bardolf, 
is by no means conclusive of his not having been summoned, as asserted 
by Dugdale in his memoir of this baron. The foUowing copy of his last 
will and the inquisitions post mortem afford proof of his being so designated 
in his lifetime, and it is certain that this title was bome by his descendant, 
his grandson William, in the lifetime of his father, John Viscount Beau- 
mont. 

" Hec est ultima voluntas Willelmi Phelipp, domini de Bardolff, tripartita 
et indentata facta primo die mensis Decembris anno regni Regis Henrici sexti 
post conquestum decimo septimo. In primis vult quod per executores suos, 
videlicet, Johannam, dominam de Bardolff, consortem suam et executrioem 
principalem hujusmodi voluntatis, Johannem Heydon, Willelmum Goode, 
armigeros, Johannem Puttok et Ricardum Palmer capellanum, testamentum 
suum primo et principaliter plenarie sit perimpletum. Item vult et requirit 
suos executores ex parte Dei Omnipotentis quod omnia debita sua vere pro- 
bata, si que fuerint, sine defalcacione sive diminucione aUcujus partis, int^re 
persolvantur. Item vult et assignat quod mille misse pro sua anima tam cito

PRBFACE. Clxxiii 

On the seventh day after the date of this codidl, the sixth daj of June, 
19th Hen. VI., the testator died, and Henry Chicheley, Archhishop of 
Canterhory, granted prohate of this will and codicil, hy his letter, hearing 
date at his manor of Croydon, on the 28th day of the same month, heing 
in the 28th year of his translation to that see, addressed to William 
Goffchin, in decretis Baccalaurius, appointing him hls proctor. Upon the 
reodpt of this letter on the second of July, the proctor repaired to Suffolk, 
and administration of the effects was granted to Joan, Lady Bardolff, Wil- 
liam Goode esquire, John Puttok, and Richard Palmer clerk, the two 
others having renounced, on the eighth day of July, io the church of Den- 
nington. 

Availing themselves of the proviso in the codicil, the executors did not 
comply with the humhle requcst of the testator to he huried in the ceme- 
tery of the church of Dennington, and he yet lies entomhed with his wife 
onder a square ohlong monument, omamented with gothic tracery, on 
which are the effigies of hoth in alahaster, richly painted and gilded, eight 
feet in length and four in hreadth, in the chapel of St. Margaret, on the 
Bouth side of the church of St. Mary of Dennington. A drawing afler the 
tomh was made hy Joshua Kirby, and published by him March 25, 1748, 
havmg heen engraved hy J. Wood ; which plate is inscribed to Sir John 
Rouse, Baronet. Subscquently drawings of the same effigies were made 
by C. A. Stothard, one of which was etched by him, and the other by 
C. J. Smith, and now constitute the plates 110 and 111 in the Monumental 
Effigies of Great Britain, folio, London, 1817, whcre they are erroneously 
supposed to be those of Sir Robert Grushill and his lady, in Hoveringham 
church, Notts, as is observed in the accompanying dcscription, and which 
error has been rectified by the publishers in a communication inserted in 
the Gentleman's Magazine. The first of thesc plates is a front view of 
both effigies, and the second a profile view of Lord Bardolf, with details 
representing one extremity of the collar of S.S., and the centre of the 
girdle, and the letters I.H.S. on the bacinet. Lord Bardolf is represented 
in full armour, save the visor, his head resting on his helmet with 

19th Hen. VI., 1441, the year of the decease of the testator. And hence the diKrepancy 
in deacribing John Lord Deaumont as a viseount before his creation to the title, if the 
codicil had been datcd 8th July, 1439, as it stands priuted in his Baronage, vol. ti.

Doke of Norfolk as of his manor of Hanworth, 20/t.; and Gerherges 
manor of John Lord of Dacre, as of his manor of Horseford, 10 /*.* " Et 

♦ In the Nomina Villarum, 9th Edw. II. 1316, for the county of Norfolk, Hundredum 
de Soth Erpyngham, we read, " Erpingham cum Ingworth, et sunt domini ejusdem, 
Robertus de Erpingham, Willelmus Gerberge, Edwardus filius eju», Prior de Faken- 
hamdam, Petrus de Brampton, Henricus de Coleby.^* Hanworth is a manor in the 
handred of North Erpingham, and was then held by John Mowbray Duke of Nor- 
folk ; and Parkin, the continuator of Blomefield, in ignorance of this tenure of the 
manor of Erpingham, informs us that Sir William Phelip Lord Bardolf died seiaed of the 
manor of Belhoui»e in Hanworth, and that William Viflcount Beaumont held it in the be- 
ginning of Edward the Fourth'8 rcign. In Domcsday this manor of Erpingham waa of 
the land of Roger Bigot. Horseford was the site of a castle, and descended in the line of 
ClaTering, Ufford, Bowet, to Elizabeth Bowet, the heircas, wife of Thomaa Lord Dacre 
of the South, and not John, as written in this inquisition. Under Erpingham Mr. Parkin 
appenda thi» note, in rcference to William Phelipp, Lord Bardolf : — "In 1415, 3 Hen. 
y. he was hired to scrve the King with 12 men at arms and 24 archcrs, and to attend him 
OTer the sca in his own person for three months, beginning June 22, and to be ready at 
Southampton ; he was to be paid out of the next fifteenths grantcd by the laity. He 
•ealed with his arma, Quarterly gules and or, in the first quarter an eagle displayed 
argent; crest a garb or, and circumscribed ' Sigillum Willielmi Phelip militis.*"* The 
helmet on his monumcot is surmounted by this crest. In 1430 Sir William Phelipp, 
knight, and Joan, his wife, presented Joan Keche, namcd in the tcxt, to the chureh of 
8t. Mary Erpingham, who was deceased in 1435. The following charter is of importance 
in clearing up the confused account of the Norfolk Topographer : — ** A Justice de Cestre 
ou a son Lieutenant, &c. Robert de Erpingham et Johan son filz et Johan de Colby, 
chivalers, salu^. Come done nous soit a entendre que Isabelle la file Monsieur Richard de 
Stockport mourut seisi en son demeigne de certains tenements en la dit counte, a quel • 
Isabell John fit^ Monsieur Edward de Warrenn, a ceo que nous avons entondus de 
notre part, est cozen et droito heire. Et pur certain nous vous facions assavoir que Ci- 
cilie, la file Monsieur Nichole de Eton, (ust marie au dit Monsieur Edward, et que 
Pavantdit Johan est eisne fit^ et hcire as dits Monsieur Edward et Cicilie et nee^ et en- 
gendre^ dedeins les espoeailes. As queux choses tesmoigner a cestes lettres patentes noua 
avons mis nos seales. Done a Erpingham le viii. jour de Marj Tan du reigne du Roy 
q*or est quarantequart (8 Mar. 1370).** To this dced these thrce seals remained attached : 
a fesse of seven fusils between 3 escallops, circumscribed, " Sigillum Johannis de Colby ;*' 
an incseutcljeon between eight martleU, circumscribed, " Sigillum Roberti de Erping- 
ham ;" and the same, ^ith a label of three points, circumscribcd, " Sigillum Johannis 
de Erpingham." Hence, in the interval between the date of this charter and the first 
day of August following, these two knights, father and son, were both deceased, and the 
heir was Sir Thomas Erpingham, the younger brother of the latter, and not the son, as 
Mr. Parkin has conjectured. These manors and advowson had been enfeoffed to three 
persons, who in right thereof presented to the church in 1372, of which the advowson was

Hence, in case of failure of issue of his deceased wife, under this grant he would have 
been tenant in tail of the lands belonging to the family of Bardolf in Norfolk, Suffolk, 
Lincolnshire, Leieestershire, and of the manor of Birling in Sussex, with remainder to 
any heir of his body. By his second wife, Katharine, Duehcss of Norfolk, hc had issue 
one daugliter, Katharine, married to Henr}' last Lord Grey, of Codnor, com. Derb., to 
whom she waa second wifc. Milles in Iiis Catalogue of Ilonour makes John Viscount 
Boaumont, father of Joan wife first of Sir William Willoughby, brother of Robert Lord

PREFACE. Clxuvii 

et Johanna ut de feodo talliato per fonnam doni predicti absque aliqua par- 
ticipatione inde facta." The jurors erroneously inferred that the entail upon 
William Bardolf, the second son of Isabella Lady Bardolf, had token effect, 
whereas it was his elder brother who inherited this ancient propcrtj of the 
first Mayor of London, Henry Fitz Aylwin, and in fixing its value at 
10 marks annually, and stating its tenure in chief of the King, confess them- 
selyes ignorant of the service. On the same day an inquisition was taken 
at Halloughton before John Pulteney, escheator of Leicestershire, which 
contains the same finding as to the joint seizin of the same parties ; and 
another at Thame on the same Friday, the morrow of AU Souls, before 
Richard Restwold, escheator of Oxfordshire, which recites the grant of the 
manor of Holton to Roger Dammory, and traces its descent to the same 
parties, who held it per formam doni predicti, it being of the annual value 
of 20 marks. 

Lastly, an inquisition was taken at Cambridge on Saturday next after the 
feast of All Saints, 4 Nov. 20 Hen. VL before John Burgh, escheator of 
the county, which contains this finding : ** Quod Johannes Keche clericus, 
Willelmus Goode, et Johannes Puttok fuerunt seisiti de manerio de Parva 
Wylburgham cum pertinentiis in comitatu predicto cum advocacione ecclesie 
ejusdem ville^ prout per cartam juratoribus hujus inquisitionis indentate 
ostensam plene liquet, et manerium illud cum advocatione predicta dimi- 
serunt Willelmo Phelipp in dicto brevi nominato et Johanne uxori sue adhuc 
supcrstiti, habendum et tenendum eisdem Willelmo Phelipp et Johanne, 
here^bus et assignatis suis imperpetuum, virtute cujus feoffamenti iidem 
Willelmus Phelipp ct Johanna fuerunt seisiti in dominico suo ut de fcodo et 
statum suum continuaverunt tota vita ipsius Wellelmi Phelipp. £t dicunt 
quod mancrium predictum cum pertinentiis tenetur de comite Oxonie, ut de 
manerio suo de Henyiigham, pcr servicium dimidii feodi militis." Annual 
valuejx/i. This statement is correct, as, in the Nomina Villarum of this 
c -<«teic 9 Edw. IL under Hundredum de Stane, we read " Villa de Wil- 
burlTam Parva, comes Oxonie est Dominus," and the castle of Hedding- 
ham, sometimes written Henningham, in Essex, was the capital seat of his 
honour. 

In the course of the following year Henry de Beaumont, the grandson 
and heir of William Phelipp Lord Bardolf, waa deceased at Dennington,

sic seisitis predicti Willelmus Clyfford, Willehnus Phelipp et Johanna ohie-

Plumpton and Barcomh is in the same form, which had heen so settled 
upon the aforesaid parties, with right of surviyorship, in reversion after the 
decease of Sir William Bardolf, knight. Each manor is stated to he sepa- 
rateiy worth yearly in all issues 20 marks, of which the two latter were 
held of the King in chief, and that of Byrling of the same King, as of his 
Duchy of Lancaster, hy services unknown to the jurors. A fourth inquisi- 
tion, taken at Leycester on Friday next after the Nativity of St. John the 
Baptist, dOth June, 26 Hen. VI. hefore Thomas Porter esquire, escheator 
of the county of Leicester, descrihes her tenure of the moiety of the manor 
of Ha]loughton. A fifth inquisition, taken at Puckeridge, in the county 
of Hertford, on Friday, the morrow of the feast of Corpus Christi, 
9 June, 25 Hen. VI. before Geoffrey Rokesley, escheator, describes her 
tenure of the moiety of the manor called Bardolfs in the parish of Watton 
atte Stone ; and a sixth, taken at Newark, in Nottinghamshire, on Wednes- 
day next before the feast of St. John the Baptist, before John Bakish, 
escheator, describes her tenure of the moieties of Shelford and Stokebardolf, 
and of the advowson of the church of Gedling ; as does a seventh at Derby 
on the following day, of a rent of 26 s, assised in the vills of Ambaston, 
Thurleston, and Eylvaston, parcels of the manor of Shelford. An eighth 
inquisition, taken at Oxford, 23d day of October, describes her tenure of 
the manor of Holton, as to one moiety, as of the honour of St. Vallery ; 
and a ninth, at Cathorp, in Lincolnshire, on Tuesday next after the feast of 
St. Michael the Archangel, 26 Hen. VL describes her tenure of the 
moieties of the manors of Ruskington, Cathorp, and Westborough, with 
their respective roembers. 

With the exception of the manors which reverted entire to Anne Lady 
Cobharo, by right of survivorship, the reroainder, after the decease of Joan 
Lady Bardolf, devolved upon her heir, William Beaumont, the only surviy-

Fenys domino de Say camerario hospicii nostri, militibus, et aliis. 
Datum per maimm nostram apud Westmonasterium viii" die Novembris." 
(8 Nov. 1448.) 

Sir Reginald Cobham, knight, by his testamcnt, bearing date 12th of 
AugUBt, 24 Hen. VL, 1446, bequeathed to Anne his wife all his household 
goods within his castle of Sterborough at the time of his decease, appointing 
that, during her life, she should have the use of all the fumiture of his 
chapel in the said castle, and after her death to remain to the Master of 
the Collegiate Church of St. Peter at Lingfield, then newly founded by him, 
and to the priests therein and their successors for ever ; in which church 
he likewise directed his body to be interred. He appointed Sir William 
Gaynesford, knight, John Swetecok, master of the college of Lyngefeld, 
John Baghall, and Sir Richard Howlot, chaplain, his executors ; and Anne, 
his wife, the supervisor of this his testament, to whom, by a codicil made 
the day following, he bequeathed a moiety of all his plate. This will was 
proved on the 14th day of October following, thus fixing the time of his 
decease to the inter\'ening period. 

Pursuant to a second writ, with the Kings teste at Westminster, 24th 
day of March, 29th of his reign, 1451, an inquisition was taken at Cringle- 
ford, in the county of Norfolk, 12th Oct, 30 Hen. VL, before Robert 
Martyn esquire, the King's escheator in the same, which contains this find- 
ing : — " Quod Johanna domina de Bardolf, defuncta, in brevi predicto 
nominata, tenuit die quo obiit plura terras et tenementa in comitatu predicto, 
que non in inquisitione indentata in brevi predicto specificata et in cancel- 
laria domini Regis retomata specificantur, videlicet, maneria de Qwynbergh, 
Cantele, Strumpeshagh, Scrowteby et Castre cum pertinentiis in comitatu 
predicto, que in eadem inquisitione in cancellaria predicta minime speci- 
ficantur, conjunctim cum Anna nuper uxore Reginaldi Cobham militis, 
ac quondam uxore Willclmi Clyfford militis adhuc superstite, ex concessione 
domini Henrici nuper Regis Anglie, avi domini Regis nunc, per litteras 
suas patentes, juratoribus predictis super capcione hujus inquisitionis in 
evidenciam ostensas, predictis Willelmo Clyfford et predicte Anne tunc uxori 
ejus et cuidam Willelmo Phelipp et predicte Johanne tunc uxori ejus, per 
nomina Willelmi Clyfford chevaler et Anne uxoris ejus, Willelmi Phelipp

PREFACB. CXCV 

inquiras per quod servicium honor et manerium predicta tenentur. Gt 
inquisitionem inde &c. Teste meipso apud Westmonasterium quinto die 
Februarii, anno regni nostri tricesimo secundo." (6 Feb. 1454.) Pursuant 
to this writ an inquisition was taken at Long Stratton, on the 12th day of 
March, before William Whyte, escheator of the county, which describes the 
service to be one knight*s fief ; and under a previous writ, dated at West- 
minster, 20th Janv., 32 Hen. VI., an inquisition was taken at Halesworth, 
com. Suffolk, on the 14th day of the month of March, before the same 
escheator, as to the tenancy of Joan, Lady Bardolf, conjointly with Anne, 
Lady Cobham, of thc manors of Clopton and Ilketeshale, held by the 
service of a fourth part of one knight's fief ; which contains a similar allega- 
tion, that John, Viscount Beaumont, had received the issues of the said 
moieties from the time of the decease of the said Joan, by what title they 
knew not, and a statement that William Beaumont was of the age of fifteen 
years and more. Other inquisitions, pursuant to writs dated 5th Feb^., 
were taken in these counties, namely, at Ware, on Tuesday next before the 
feast of St. Valentine, 12th Feb., 32 Hen. VI., before Richard de Lafield, 
escheator of Hertfordshire, as to the tenancy of the manor of Watton-attc- 
Stone,* which includes this finding : — " Et ulterius dicunt quod advocatio 
ecclesie de Stapulford in dicto brevi specificata est et tempore concessionis 
(Edwardi primi) fuit pertinens et appendens ad manerium de Watton, et 
valet per annum iiii /*. f ;" at Navenby, in the county of Lincoln, 1 7th May , 



• In the note at thc foot of p. cxl. thc conjecture that Croweberg was the manor of 
Greenbury, h erroneous. It was the nanie of a separate manor in tho parish of Wat- 
ton-att-Stone, as appears by a record cited in CIutterbuck*9 Hiatory of Hertfordshire, 
namely, Rot. Claus. 8 Ric. II. m. 33, being a copy of the grant made by William Bar- 
dolf, knight, Lord of Wyrmegaye, to John Cley, clerk, John Grene, clerk, Robert Ale- 
saundre and Nicholas Horspath, of the said manor of Crowbergh in the vill of Watton-at- 
Stone, and of lands in Datchworth, Welwe, and Aston. Datchworth, W^elwyn, and 
Aston are adjoining pari-^hcs to Watton-atte-Stone. One of the heirs of Poter de Va- 
loines was Alcxander de Baliol, and according to Chauncy, the older bistorian of this 
county, ho granted thi.-* estate to Sir Robert Aguillon. 

t The church «f Stapleford, de<licated to St. Mary, in the deanery of Hertford, arch- 
dcaconr>- of lluntingdon, diocese of Lincoln, in the patronage of the lords of thi» manor 
«f Watton, called Bardolfs, and in its immediate vicinity, was thus filled by incumbents at 
tliis timc undor Bishops Reping<lon and Alnewick : William Swayn, 4th Dec. 1409, pre-

tenetur de domino Rege in capite pcr servicium vicesime partis unius feodi

£t eadem Anna tenuit alteram medietatem ejusdem manerii cum pertinentiis 
in dominico suo ut de feodo die quo obiit. £t dicunt quod eadem Anna 
obiit sexto die Novembris ultimo preterito, et quod Willehnus filius Johannis 
Vicecomitis Beaumont, nunc dominus de Bardolf, est consanguineus et heres 
ejusdem Anne, et est et fuit etatis xvi annorum die Veneris proximo post 
festum Sancti Marci £vangeliste ultimo preterito ante diem capcionis hujus 
inquisitionis.*' * Another inquisition, which was taken at Ware, 12th Feb. 
befbre Richard de la Felde, escheator of Hertfordshire, recites the descent 
of the manor of Watton, as above, down to Thomas, late Lord Bardolf, and 
contains this statement : *^ idem Thomas de manerio predicto cum perti- 
nentiis fuit seisitus in dominico suo ut de feodo talliato per formam doni 
predicti, et habuit exitmn Annam in predicto brevi nominatam, nuper uxorem 
WiUelmi Clyfford militis, et post mortem ejusdem Willelmi Clyfford nuptam 
Reginaldo Cobham militi, et Johannam nuper uxorem Willehni Phelipp 
militis, nuper domini de Bardolf, et obiit. Post cujus mortem dicte Anna et 
Joanna fuerunt seisite de manerio predicto cum pertinentiis in dominico suo 
ut de feodo talliato per formam doni predicti. lidem Willehnus Phelipp et 
Johanna habuerunt exitum £lizabetham, quam Johannes Vicecomes Beau- 
mont duxit in uxorem, iidemque Vicecomes et £lizabetha habuerunt exitum 
Willelmum, nunc dominum de Bardolf, iidemque W^illelmus Phelipp, Johanna 
et £lizabetha obierunt, et postea predicta Anna obiit seisita de medietate 
manerii predicti cum pertinentiis in dominico suo ut de feodo talliato in 

* Apparently the moiety of the manor of Shelford, which was of the Everingham fee, a 
family in which the representation of the lincs of Caux and Berkin had vested, had been 
sold prior to the decease of Reginald de Everingham and of his son Edmund in the 15th 
Ric. II. 1391-2, aa there is no mention of their being seized of this moiety in the inquiii- 
tion tAken after their deaths ; and hence this moiety being held in fee by Anne, Lady 
Cobham, she was empowered to grant it to thc fcoffees named in the text, one of whom 
waa Richard lUingworth, whose son and heir, Ralph, 17 Edw. IV. 1477, acknowledged 
himself to hold the manor of Shclford, called Evcringham Fee, of thc King in chief, for 
half a knighfs fief. The other moiety wa» thc Bardolf Fee, and paased to her heir, Wil- 
Hain, Viscount Beaumunt, along with Stokc Bardolf manor, in the parish of Gedling.

PREPACE. CCl 

A fourth inquisition, taken at Leicester on Friday, lOth day of May, 
before William Cotun, the escheator of the county, deduces the descent of 
the manor of Halloughton from the time of its grant by Henry the Second 
to the time of the death of Thomas late Lord Bardolf, and contains 
recitals of the letters patent of Henry IV., dated 10 Aug., 6th year of his 
reign, g^ranting the lands of the same Lord Bardolf to his most dear con- 
sort, Joan, Queen of England, and others giving the reversion of the same 
to the parties named above afber her decease ; as also the letters patent of 
Henry the Sixth, dated lOth May, I6th year of his reign, granting the 
reversion of the moiety, which Anne Lady Cobham held, to Sir William 
Phelipp and Joan and the heirs of their bodies : and a fifth, taken at 
Navenby, com. Linc, before Richard Wenselowe, the escheator of that 
county, describes the joint seizin of the same parties in the manors of 
Caythorp, Ruskington and W^estborough, and recites the letters patent of 
Henry the Sixth, dlst Jan., 16th year of his reign, granting the reversions 
of the moieties expectant upon the decease of the said Lady Anne Cobham 
in like form as above. Three more inquisitions were taken, as to the 
manors of Qwynburgh, Cantele, Strumpeshagh, Scrowteby and Castre 
in Norfolk, at Longstratton, 12 March, and as to the moieties of the manors 
of Clopton and Ilketeshall in Suffblk, at Halesworth, 14th March, 32 
Hen. VI., before William Whyte, the escheator of those counties, and as to 
the manor of Holton in Oxfordshire, at Oxford, 8ih Oct, 33 Hen. VI., 
before Edward EUesmere, escheator of that county, in which are the same 
recitals as to the estate and possession of her, the said Anne Lady Cobham, 
as the survivor, and as to the grants of the reversion after her decease 
to the same parties in tail, and the same findings as to her heir, William, 
then Lord Bardolf ; as also these several statements as to the tenures and 



Plumpton, and 5«. firom Barcombe. They are situate in the Archdeaconiy and Deaneiy 
of Lewee, diocese of Chichester ; an«l had Uy patrona at the time of Pope Nicolas^s Taxa- 
tion in 1291. Birling was only a manor in the pariah of East-Dean-cum-Friston, hundred 
of Willington and rape of Pevensey, giving name to Birling G^p upon the aea coast. The 
Honour, of which the castle of Pevensey waa the chief seat, was afteru^ards designated the 
Honour of L'AigIe from the family which possessed it in the reign of Henry the Fint and 
so sumamed from a town in Normandy. In one inquisition Birling is described to be held 
of the Honour of Aquila, and eventually this Honour became parcel of the Duchy of 
Lancaster.

PREFACE. CClll 

September following,* to have his age proved, in order to take up the suc- 
oession to his patemal and matemal inheritance, which had now been cast 
upon him. The following record proves that the King yet continued to 
exercise regal authority, and it was only in the following month that the 
Duke of York avowed his claim to the crown.

hannis nuper Vicecomitis Beaumont et Elizabethe uKoris ejus defuncte,

Hence the Sovereign up to this time was unccrtain as to the fate of his gallant adherent, 
and as this proof of age was delivered into the Court of Chancery on the 20th day of Sep- 
tember, 39 Hcn. VI. by the hands of William Belford, it would only be on that day that 
the truth of his being slain was certified to his Sovereign.

After the return of this proof of age into Chancery on the 20th day of 
September, the King sent a second writ to the escheator of Lincolnshire 
which contains a recital of the tenour of the fonner, and concludes as 
follows ; " Ac tu inter alia retomaveris quod predictus Johannes Vicecomes 
mortuus est, tibi precipimus quod scire facias Johanni episcopo Uerefordie, 
Leoni domino de Welles, Ricardo Bingham, Roberto Staunton, Ricardo 
Walcote, Ricardo Denyngton, Thome GarwcU et Georgio Homeby,

This second writ was thus indorsed : ** Virtute hujus brevis scire feci

After the expiration of the three weeks following the feast of St. Michael, 
the King by his letters patent, bearing date at Westminster, l5th day of

Viscount Beaumont and Lord Bardolf had married his first wife, Joan, 
daughter of Humphrey Stafford, Duke of Buckingham, hy his wife Anne, 
another of the daughters of Ralph de Neville, first Earl of Westmoreland, 
sister of Katharine, Duchess of Norfolk, the stepmother of this second 
Viscount Beaumont, and of Cecily, Duchess of York, mother of the new 
sovereign. Notwithstanding this connection, he continued to support the 
cause his father had died in defence of, and was present at the battle of 
Towton, fought on Palm Sunday, 29th day of the month of March, on the 
Lancastrian side. He was there made prisoner, but contrived to effect his 
escape on the 14th day of November following, and for several years con- 
tinued in rebellion to the newly established sovereign. In the Parliament, 
b^un at Westminster on the fourth day of that month^ William Viscount 
Beaumont was attainted and disabled from holding any dignity or estate, 
whereby his extensive possessions continued during the whole time of suc- 
cession of the Yorkist line of Kings at the disposal of the crown. By 
letters patent, dated at Westminster, 5th day of March, 2nd year of his 
reign, 1462, King Edward granted to Thomas archbishop of Canterbury, 
and George bishop of Exeter, his best beloved cousins, and to his beloved 
Joan, wife of Sir William Beaumont, knight, late Lord Beaumont, daughter 
of Humphrey late Duke of Buckingham, the manors of Stowebardolf, 
Rungton, Fareswell in Fyncham, Whinburgh, Mateshall, Cantley, Strump- 
shaw and Caister-Bardolf in Norfolk ; Ilketshall, Denington and Brundisb, 
and Cretingham in Suffolk ; Ruskington aud Digby, Westborough and 
Caythorpe in Lincolnshire, which had becn those of Thomas, late Lord 
Bardolf, or of William Phelipp, late Lord Bardolf, (the manors and 
demesnes of Plumpton, Birling and Barcombe in Sussex, and an inn ia 
London near Pauleswarff being excepted and reser\'ed to the grantor, his 
heirs, and assigns,) to have and to hold to the same archbishop, bishop 
and Joan, and to the heirs of the body of the same Joan, to the use and 
behoof of the same Joan and her heirs aforesaid ; and in default of such issue 
of Joan, then all the aforesaid manors, &c. except as before excepted, were 
to remain to the aforesaid William Beaumont and the heirs of his body 
legitimately begotten, with reversion in default of such issue to the grantor 
and his heirs.

of Wilhy, com. Suff., and Scrotehy, com. Norf., with the advowsons of the 
several churches helonging to those lordships, the same having devolved to 
the crown hy act of Parliament the preceding year upon the attainder of 
William Viscount Beaumont; and Thomas Blount esquire had a like 
grant of the manors in Linwood, called Bayeux Fee, and Thoresway Neviile, 
and lands and tenements in Winterton and Tealhy, co. Linc. ; as had also 
Rohert Palmer, esquire of the King's household, of land and tenements to 
the value of I6/1. annually, in Kirklangton, Thorplangton, Eastlangton, 
West Langton, and Tirlangton, com. Leic, late those of William Viscount 
Beaumont, attainted. 

King Edward IV., in the same year, granted to Johanna, his couain, 
sister of John late Duke of Norfolk, and wife of William Willoughhy 
knight, and to Cecilia daughter of the said Joan, in general tail, the manors 
of Edenham, Billinghorough, Linwood Beaumont, and Thoresway Beau- 
mont, com. Linc, and all the hereditaments in Lincoln called Beaumont 
Rents, late those of John Viscount Beaumont, with a remainder, in special 
tail, to the hcirs male of the said Cecilia, to hold hy the services due and 
accustomed. The Lady Joan was the daughter of Katharine Duchess of 
Norfolk hy Sir Thomas Strangeways, knt. ; and, after the decease of thia 
first hushand, she remarried William Lord Berkeley, created Earl of Not- 
tingham, 28th Jun. 1483, as also Marquis of Berkeley in 1488 after her 
death, which occurred 24th Feh., 1 Ric III., 1484, leaving no issue sur- 
viving. Her mother, in the month of January, 1465, contracted a fourth 
marriage with Sir John Wydeville knight, hrother of Elizaheth wife cf 
Edward IV., as we leam from this passage in the Annals of William of 
Worcester, of the fourth year of his reign : " Mense Januarii, Katerina 
Ducissa Norffolchise, juvencula aetatis ferc iiii" annorum, maritata est 
Johanni Widcvile, fratri Reginae, aetatis xx annorum. Maritagium diabo- 
licum I vindicta Bernardi inter eosdem postea patuit." The vengeance thua 
drawn upon this ill-suitcd match was manifestcd by the fate of the youthful 
hridegroom, who, together with his father, Richard Earl Rivers, was 
heheaded at Northampton, 12th August, 9 £dw. IV., 1469. Pursuant to

other feoffees, ihe said manors, which had late been those of Sir William 
Beaumont knight, otherwise of the said William late Viscount Beaumont 
and Lord of Bardolf, to have and to hold as fully and entirely as the afore- 
said William Beaumont, or any one else, had best held them before they 
came into the King's hands, for the term of the life of the aforesaid Joan, 
to the use of the same Joan, without impeachment of any waste done in the 
same. The above-mentioned feoffees had also a g^rant of all issues and 
profits from the aforesaid manors from the fourth day of March, first year 
of his reign, up to the date of the same presents, without rendering any 
account thereof ; and the concluding clause contains a grant of the said 
manors to the heirs issuing of the body of the aforesaid Joan after her 
decease for ever to be held by the ancient services. In the preamble the 
King ascribes his motive for this grant to the neamess of blood on the part 
of Joan Viscountess Beaumont to himself, and contents himself with a fine 
of 20». 4d, only, to be paid to him on this behalf. The exclusion of her 
husband, first from the benefit of the entail upon the heirs of his own body, 
and secondly from his tenancy for life in these manors, was, it seems, pre- 
paratory to a divorce between the parties ; for we find her, before the close 
of this reign, described as the wife of Sir William Knyvet knight, of 
Buckenham Castle in Norfolk, who was left a widower by the decease of 
Joan, Lady Knyvet, daughter of John Grey, on the 4th of April, 14 Edw. 
IV. 1474. In 1465, Thomas Archbishop of Canterbury, as feoffee, pre- 
sented John Smith to the church of Cantley ; and in 1475 John Ward was 
presented to the church of North Rung^n, by the feoffees above-named 
of Joan Beaumont, daughter of Humphrey Duke of Buckingham ; but in 
1477 Andrew Jenney was admitted rector of the church of Cantley, on the 
presentation of Sir William Knyvet and Joan daughter of Humphrey Duke 
of Buckingham, — a proof that they were then married. 

In the ninth year of Edward IV. the Lancastrian party recovered posses- 
sion of the realm ; and, in a Parliament held at the palace of Westminster, 
26 th Nov. 1470, the attainted peers recovered their titles and property, and 
William Viscount Beaumont was again at his post by the side of his 
sovereign. In the " Historie of the arrivall of Edward IV. in England, and 
the finall recouerye of his kingdomes from Henry VI. A.D. mcccclxxi,** 
mention is made of this nobleman by the name of Lord Bardolf in this pas-.

produced the effect desired ; so that at the last, if the Earl had not submitted 
himself to the King, he had been taken prisoner by his own men ; and so 
Fortescue entered the Mount the 15th day of February, in the which was 
victual enough to have served the garrison until Midsummer. Thus made 
prisoners, the Earl of Oxford, " the Lorde Bemonde,*' two brothers of the 
said Earl, and Thomas Clifford, were brought to the King. The Earl of 
Oxford and his brothers, George and Thomas, obtained from the King 
letters patent of pardon in the 14th year of Edw. IV. as to their lives only, 
which contain this clause ; " De gratia nostra speciali ac ex mero motu nostro 
predictis nuper comiti, Georgio et Thome ac omnibus aliis et singulis in 
predictis fortalicio et coUegio, vocato Seynte Michell Mounte in comitatu 
Comubie, cum prefato nuper comite existentibus, quibuscumque nominibus 
censeantur seu eorum aliquis censeatur, Willehno Beamounde milite nuper 
Domino de Beaumonde et Ricardo Laumarth exceptis, gratiam vite sue et 
eorum cujuslibet concedimus ;" and from which it may be inferred that the 
two persons named, of whom the second is probably identical with Richard 
de Veer, had escaped from the Mount before its surrender, and sought refuge 
on the Continent, in contradiction to the chronicler, who describes << Lord 
Bemonde" to have been brought as prisoner to the King. Otherwise, with 
Buch feeling on the part of the Sovereign, had he ever been in his power, 
there can be Uttle doubt of a capital sentence and execution under the act of 
attainder. 

In the Parliament, begun at Westminster, 7th Nov., 1 Hen. VII., 1485, 
Sir William Beaumont, knight, exhibited his petition to the King for a 
reversal of the Act of Attainder passed in the Parliament of Edw. IV., late 
King of England, holden at Westminster, 4th Nov., first year of his reign, 
against him, by the name of Viscount Beaumont, as also for restoration 
of his name, dignity, estate, and inheritance, and an enactment that no 
letters patent granted by reason of the same Act should be any longer in 
foroe to his prejudice, so as no person who had taken the issues and profits 
of his said inheritance in the interval should be sued for any such taken 
prior to the day of the meeting of the said Parliament, either by him, his 
heirs, or executors ; which said petition having been read, heard and fully 
understood, of the advice and assent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and 
of the Commons of the realm of England, and of the authority of the same, 
answer was made to the sarae in the following form : — *' Soit fait come il

made unto hym by William Viscount Beaumont, by his Letteres Patentes, 
of or for an Annuytie of xxx li. by yere oute of Barton upon Humbre, ne

and every thing therein conteyned, be and abyde in their fuU strength and 
effecte, and as available unto the said Viscount Wellys, as though this 
present Acte had never be made." 

By virtue of this Act the King, by Letters Patent, dated 11 ^*> of Decem- 
ber foUowing, granted to John de Vere, E^rl of Oxford, the custody of the 
person of William Viscount Beaumont, and of his said livelihood and inher- 
itance. From these proceedings we are made acquainted with the fact that 
the mind of this nobleman had given way under the sudden oveijoy of his 
restoration to his name, dignity and inheritance ; and that it had eventually 
become necessary, after first incapacitating him from having the rule of his 
estate, to appoint a committee of his person. This appointment of John 
Earl of Oxford to be his guardian was the occasion of his removal to the 
manor-house of the Earls of Oxford, at Wivenhoe,* in the county of 
Essex ; and in the church of that parish, dedicated to St. Mary, he was 
interred. He died in the seventieth year of his age, on the 19th day of 
December, 23 Hen. VII. 1507, without issue, as we leam from this 
inscription on his tomb in the chancel of the church above named : " Here 
in the erthe, undyr thys Marbull, Rest the bonys of the Noble Lorde 
Wylliam Beaumount, Knyght, Viscount Beaumont, and Lorde Bardolfe. 

* Norden, in his Desoription of Essex, mentionB '* Wyvenhoo Hall, deoayde. A stately 
howM ; sometyme E. of Oxford.** The familiee of Beaumont and Vere were neariy 
related through the marriage of Henry fifth Lord Beaumont with Margaret, daughter of 
John de Vere, aeventh Earl of Oxford. In the east window of the church of Barton- 
upon-Humber is still remaining a portraiture of this nobleman in painted glaat ; and 
beneath waa this tetrastick : 

'* Rex Hierosolvmus cum Bellomonte locatur, 
Bellusmons iterum cum Boghan consociatur ; 
Bellusmons iterum cum Longicastro religatur, 
Bellusmons [sponsalibus] Oxonie titulatur.** 



The word between brackets wanting in the original, thus supplied by Mr. Segar, 
doubilees a third repetition of the word ** iterum.'*

young in the Tower of London during hiB fitther^s exile ; and by his second, the lady 

abo?e named, he had no iasue. Departing this life 10 Mar. 4 Hen. VIII. 1513, he had 

interment in the Priory of Colne, under a tomb, which he liad prepared for himaelf and 

Margaret his first wife, there already buried. The next Earl of Oxford, John de Vere, 

nephew of the deceased Earl, aon of Sir Geoige Vere, knight, his brother, died without 

iasue, 14 July, 18 Hen. VIIX. 1526, in the lifetime of the Ck>unte88 of Oxford, and waa 

sacceeded in the Earldom by hia couain, John de Vere, fifteenth Elarl of Oxford, aon and

Nov. following, she bequeathed her body to be buried in the Parish Church of Wy venhoe, 

by the corpse of William Viscount Beaumont, her firat huaband. Her effigy in braoa 

atill remaina, with thia inscription : '* Of your charitie pray for the Soule of the high and

erroneously described aa wife of John de Vere, fourteenth Elarl of Oxford, nephew of her 

huaband, whose wife waa Anne or Agnes, daughter of Thomas Howard, second Duke of 

Norfolk, and who was not a Knight of the Garter. A corrcct pedigree of her patemal 

relations is inserted in the Scrope and Grosvenor Controversy, where she is described to 

have had a sister, Frances, but omitting the name of her husband, Sir John St. Clere, 

Knight, by whom she had issue, John, Giles, and Elizabeth. Her half-aister, Franoea 

Wyndham, had died in 1505, before the date of the will. Leland, in his Itinerary,

the 24th day of March, in the city of Dublin, he caused one Lambert Symnell, a child of 
ten years of age, son to Thomas Symnell, late of Oxford, joiner, to be proclaimed King of 
the realm ; and from thence arrived with a great navy in Fumess in Lancaahire, the 4th 
day of June last past, whence, the same day, with Sir Thomas Broughton, knight, and 
others, to the number of 8000 men, in hostile manner he passed on continually from 
place to place until he came to Stoke in the county of Nottingham, where, the 16th day 
of June last past, he levied war against thc person of his Sovereign and natural liege Lord, 
and gave to him mighty and strong battle. Throughout this Act there is no mention of 
Francis Viscount Lovell, who was apparently left out by reason that he had been already 
attainted in the Parliament holden at Westminster, 7 Nov. 1 Henry VIL 1485, as one of 
the partisans of Richard the Third. The second special act of attainder was therefore 
unnecessary, and its sole object appears, in making such false allegations, to have been to 
find some pretext for barring his heirs from claiming any inheritance, which would have 
reverted to him, had he been alive.

divers other gentlemen, and the Viscount Lord Lovell put to flight," From 
this time the historians make no fmlher mention of him, but there was a 
strong rumour that he on that occasion preserved his life bj retiring to some 
secret place, where he was starved to death by the treachery or neglect of 
those in whom he confided ; " which report," writes the author of the Gene- 
alogical History of the House of Yvery, in its different branches of Yvery, 
Luvel, Perceval, and Goumay, printed at London in the year 1742, " in our 
own times seems to be confirmed in a very particular manner ; for the house 
of Minster-Luvel, being not long since pulled down, in a vault was found 
the person of a man, in very rich cloathing, seated in a chair, with a table 
and a mass-book before him, the body of whom was yet entire when the 
workmen entered, but upon admission of the air soon fell to dust ; from 
whence we may reasonably conclude that it was the fate of this unhappy 
nobleman, to have retired to his own house after the battle before-men- 
tioned, and there to have trusted himself to some servant, by whom he was 
there immured, and afterwards neglected, either through treachery or fear, 
or some accident which befel that person." This Francis Viscount Lovell 
had married Anne, daughter of Henry Lord Fitzhugh, of Ravensworth 
Castle, in the parish of Kirkby-Ravensworth, in Richmondshire, com. Ebor; 
who survived her unfortunate husband, as we leam from this provision, 
which is appended to the act of special attainder recited above. " Pro- 
vided alwey, that this Acte of Atteyndre, ne any other Acte or Actes made 
or hereafler to be made in this present Parliament, extend not, ne be in noo 
wise prejudiciall ne hurtfull to Anne Viscountess Lovell, late wife of the 
said Fraunces late Viscount Lovell, to or for any estate made of any of the 
premysses to the said late Viscount and the said Anne, ne to any other 
persone or persones to or for any astate made of any of the premysses by

ADDENDA. 



P. clxxxvi. — Note, The mention in this grant of John Lord Bardolf to 
the priory of Shouldham, of Margaret, widow of Guy de Montfort, of 
Beaudesert, com. Warwick, daughter of Thomas Beauchamp, Earl of War- 
wick, and of Catharine, daughter of Guy de Warwick, eldest son of the 
Earl of Warwick, deceased, 28th April, 25 Edw. III. 1351, together with 
his own sister, Elizabeth, is of itself indicative of a near degree of kindred 
between the parties ; and hence it may be assumed, as an unquestionable 
fact, that Agnes, his mother, wife of Thomas Lord Bardolf, was the seventh 
daughter of Thomas Beauchamp, Earl of Warwick, and that Margaret was 
the aunt and Catharine the cousin-german of the grantor. According to 
the pedigree of this family, compiled by John Rous, this earl had a daughter, 

Agnes, who is described to have been the wife of Cokesey, and after- 

wards of Bardolf. Dugdale informs us that he had nine daughters, 

whose portraitures were curiously drawn, and placed in the windows on the 
Bouth side of the quire of the collegiate church in Warwick, and in the 
habit of that time. Seven of tbem were married, and had their patemal 
arms upon their inner garments, and on their outer mantle their husband'8 
arms. The same writer has also given an engraving of these nine daughtera 
so painted, and to each is a label with their names. Thus the one labelled 
Margareta has on her gown, " Gules, crusilly and a fess or," the arms of 
Beauchamp, and on her mantle, " Bendy or and azure," the arms of Montfort ; 
and the seventh daughter, labelled Agneta, has the same arms on her gown, 
and on her mantle, " Azure, semee of cinquefoils or," the arms of Bardolf. 
The cross-crosslets are not liraited to six, but spread all over the gowns, and 
mantle also in respect of Juliana, the ninth daughter, who died unmarried. In 
like manner the cinquefoils are not limited to three, as usually bome by the 
family of Bardolf. Elizabeth, another daughter, is twice pourtrayed as Isa- 
bella and Elizabeth,and having in each instance on her mantle, " Sable,a cross 
engrailed or," the arms of Uflford, Earl of Suffblk, which repetition Dugdale 
explains as being descriptive of her first marriage with John Lord Strange 
of Blackmere, com. Salop. Hence we may infer that Agnes was the wife, 
first, of Thomas Lord Bardolf, whose eldest son John was bom 13th Jan. 
1312; and that after his decease, on the loth day of Feb. 2 Edw. III. 
1328, she re-married Sir Walter de Cokesey, of Cokesey, cora. Worc. whose 
son and heir, Sir Walter Cokesey, was cxecutor of Sir William Tmssell, of 
Cubleston, com. Staff. whose will bears date 10 Feb. 1379.

que remansit apud Westmonasterium. Eodem anno factus est 
Maior iterum Michael Thovy, et edictum fuit per preceptum 
Domini Regis, quod si aliquis denarius sive obolus retonsus 
inventus fuisset prolatus ad aliquid emendum, statim perfora-

illo recordo, et universis brevibus Domini Regis, quod dicta

derent Abbati Wcstmonasterii ad habendas libertates, quos 

ipse ei dederat in Comitatu Myddelsex, in excambium aliarum 

libertatum, quas Cives potuerunt de jure petere. Ad quod 

Cives responderunt, " quod nichil inde facere potuerunt sine 

assensu totius Communc.'* Quin apprehensus Rex, quasi motus 

in iram, fecit eos venire coram se, et multis altercationibus factis 

super predicto judicio, et Ilenrico de la Mare, affine predicte 

Margerie Vyel, semper allegante contra Cives ; tandem habito 

consilio Episcoporum et Baronum coram Domino Rege Maior 

et cives quieti recesserunt. Eodem anno factus est Maior ite- 

rum Michael Tovy. Memorandum quod cum Symon filius 

Marie pro delicto suo tradidisset Aldermannatum suum in 

manus civitatis, sicut superius notatum est, tunc per assensum 

totius commune Maior rcddidit ei Aldermannatum suum, tali 

conditione, quod ipse concessit, si amplius aliquo tempore con- 

tra libertatem Civitatis veniret, quod Maior posset sine placito 

vel contradictione aliqua Aldermannatum suum in manus 

Civitatis rehabere, ipso penitus amoturo. Unde hoc anno, 

quia dictus Symon steterat manifeste cum Margeria Vyel in 

querimonia, quam illa fecerat Domino Regi de judicio dato per 

Cives, de quo ipsa convicta fuit, sicut prescriptum est, et ob 

multas alias pravas causas et detestabiles, quas ipse contra 

Civitatem occulte perpetraverat, Maior cepit Aldermannatum 

illum in manum suam, ipso omnino amoto ; et homines illius

mediam quadragesimam Alcxandrum le Ferrun, et etiam in

rant homines, qui positi fuerant per preceptum suum in inqui-

arie et Canonicos Sancti Bartholomei, facere sacramentum?'' 

Nam, parro tempore elapso antea, dictus Archiepiscopus voluit 

inter dictos Canonicos facere visitationem, quod ipsi permittere 

noluerunt. Cives vero responderunt ^* quod nullum diem 

habuerunt ad placitandum ibi contra Abbatem Westmonasterii^ 

nec extra civitatem Liondoniarum deberent placitare ; et si de- 

buissent inde placitare^ nullum judicium recipere inde deberent 

in absentia parium suorum^ scilicet Comitum, Baronum Anglie ; 

et quod nullus homo Londoniarum debet jurare^ nisi per sacra- 

mentum^ quod fecerat Domino Regi, et in fide qua tenetur ei, 

in aliqua inquisitione, nisi fuerit ubi aliquis posset perdere 

vitam vel membra, vel ad terram perdendam sive lucrandam/' 

Postea habito consilio inter Regem et consilium suum retradita

8ui nono, in aliquo articulo infringerentur vel inseryierentur 

post illum diem. Postea in Crastino Ascensionis Domini^ 

scilicet, xxx<>. die Maii^ per preceptum Domini Regis, uniyersa 

Communitas Londoniarum congregata fuit in cimiterio West- 

monasterii, ubi Dominus Rex cepit licentiam^ dicens quod trans* 

Aretaret in Wasconiam ; et precepit ut omnes de Civitate con- 

venissent, die Dominica sequenti, ad crucem Sancti Pauli 

coram illis^ quos ibidem esset missurus^ et ibi jurassent fideli- 

tatem Domino Edwardo^ filio suo, et Regine sue^ cui Regnum 

suum erat traditurus. Postea^ negotium iliud positum fuit in 

respectu usque in die Martis in Pentecosten ; quo die imiyer- 

salis Communa Civitatis fecit fidelitatem Domino Edwardo et in 

presentia sua, ad predictam crucem, salva fide Domini Regis. 

Eodem tempore cepit Rex a Judeis universis totam partem 

omnium mobilium suorum, credendo eis per starrios suos ; et 

mandavit per breve suum Justitiariis ad custodiam Judeorum 

assignatis^ ut siquis Judeus non satisfecisset de tallagio suo 

infra decimum diem post visum dicti brevis, quod ipse utlaga- 

retur, et portus ei assignaretur et omni domui sue apud Dovre 

ad transfretandum cum proximo vento, nunquam redditurus ; 

quod postea non stetit. Eodem tempore confirmavit Rex per 

novam cartam suam civibus Londoniarum omnes libertates suas, 

leges et consuetudines^ et quas etiam habuerunt tempore Regis 

Henrici primi, usitatas et non usitatas^ et concessit quod vii 

libre sterlingorum per annum allocarentur Vicecomitibus in firma 

eorum pro libertate ecclesie Sancti Pauli, et quod Maior^ qui 

solebat tantummodo presentari Regi, ubicumque fuisset in 

Anglia^ de cetero presentaretur Baronibus de Scaccario apud 

Westmonasterium, si Rex non fuerit Londoniis^ eo tempore quo 

Maior electus fuerit. Et sciendum quod Cives tunc dederunt 

Domino Regi D. marcas pro illa carta habenda. 

Postea, die Mercurii ante festum Sancti Laurentii, posuit se De tratufirta- 
Dominus Rex in mari, transfretandum in Wasconiam. '**^ "^-

breve Domini Regis^ dicentes quod Maior anno precedenti non 
fuit admissus ratione predicte nove carte, sed per assensum Do- 
mine Regine^ que tunc fuit apud Westmonasterium, cui regnum 
fuit commissum ad custodiendum. Et statim postea Barones 
ostenderunt breve Domini Regis, per quod preceptum est eis ut 
caperent Civitatem in manus Regis pro assisa panis et cervisie 
in Civitate non observata. Et licet Cives pro hujus defalta non 
debuissent occasionari^ sed Vicecomites tantummodo^ si inde 
fuissent convicti ; tamen capta est Civitas in manus Regis, et 
tradita Johanni de Gyseorz ad custodiendam^ ipso Johanne 
jurato coram Baronibus. Postea clerici et omnes servientes 
Vicecomitum, et etiam custodes Portarum, Tamisie, et Gaole ibi 
juraverunt. Ethoctotum perlocutum fuit in predicto Parlia- 
mento, quia Cives, in se divisi, noluerunt venire ibi coram 
Comitem Ricardum, sicut ei promiserunt, ad terminandum hoc, 
unde ipsi eum multotiens ante rogaverant, scilicet, de excambio. 
Postea, cives accesserunt ad Comitem ad impetrandam gratiam 
suam, quibus ipse posuit diem apud Liondonias, dicens " quod 
nihil inde faceret sine consilio Regis, cui medietas exitus ex- 
cambii pertinebat.^' Postea, tertia die post festum Sancti Ead-

Regis pro DC. marcis ; et remisse sunt omnes occasiones ex- Remiue tuut

prebuit Dominus Ricardus Comes Comubie, frater dicti Regis, 
assensum electioni principum Alemannie, qui eum elegerant in 
Regem eorum. Ekidem hora illius diei fuit tempestas valida et 
tonitrua, et choruscationes apud Londonias et alibi. 

Usualiter consuetudo est, quando pecunia, quam debent ^ correctUme 
vendi per stateram, ponderatur, quod statera debet trahere in- lugi,, 
clinando versus pecuniam, excepto auro et argento, quod semper 
ponderatur per medium clavum, neque trahens ad pondam 
neque ad aurum sive ad argentum; et quod ponderator, qui 
ponderatur per stateram Domini Regis in Civitate, per hujus 
tractum potuit prebere majus pondus uni quam alio, sive per 
favorem sive per timorem, sive mercede interveniente, sive for- 
sitan per ignorantiam. Provisum fuit et statutum, die Sabbati 
post festum Sancti Nicholai anno regni Regis Henrici filii 
Regis Johannis xlj. quod omnis pecunia, que debet vendi per 
stateras Regis in Civitate, ponderetur sicut aurum et argentum, 
nichil trahens versus pecuniam ; et pro tractu predicto debet 
venditor dare emptori ad quemlibet centum, quatuor libras. 
Tunc provisum fuit quod ponderator pro labore suo debet 
habere pro uno centum per se ponderato, unum obolum, et 
de pluribus centenariis de quolibet centum unum quadrantem, 
et sic de milliariis duos denarios et obolum. 

Anno eodem Henricus de Ba, Justitiarius, venit in Gild- 
hall Londoniarum, deferens breve Domini Regis Maiori et 
Vicecomitibus, qui fecerunt venire coram eo omnes vinetarios

nobis potentia formidanda. Data Aquisgrano ZTiij. die Maii, 
anno regni nostri primo. 

Hoc anno circa festum Sancti Petri ad Vincnla militavit Rex 
Anglie cum magno exercitu super Lewellinum filium Oriffini, 
Principem Wallie, et super alios Wallenses^ qui opposuerunt se 
contra Regem, eo quod Dominus Edwardus filius Regis noluit 
ilios tractare secundum consuetudines eorum. Qui veniens cum 
exercitu suo usque ad castrum quod vocatur Ghennok^ moram 
fecit ibi usque ad Nativitatem beate Marie, expectans homines 
suos de Hibemia, quos mandaverat ; et ipsis non venientibus, 
cum Dominus Rex vidisset quod non potuit Wallenses oppri- 
mere, nisi cum multitudine servientum pedissequorum, inde le* 
cessit^ posita gamestura in castris suis. 

Hoc anno circa festum Nativitatis Beate Marie pax formata 
est inter Cives Londoniarum et Abbatem de Waltham, qid ante 
fuerant discordes^ eo quod Abbas voluit habere stallagium de 
ilUs in nundinis de Waltham^ et hac de causa omnes deLondoniis 
retraxerunt se, nolentes venire in predictis nundinis de Waltham 
per tres annos et amplius. £t est concordia talis quod Abbas 
transmisitLondoniarum Civibus omnia namia, que captafuenmt 
pro dicto stallagioy et pro namiis perditis et putridis valorem in

Gloucestrie, Henrico de Ba, et aliis de consilio Domini R^^b, 
dicens quod Rex noluit permittere quod Civitas sua gravaretur^ 
sed voluit certificari, qui divites fuerunt deportati in tallagiis, et 
qui pauperes gravati, et si Maior et consiliarii sui ad usus suos 
proprios aliquid de tallagiis accepissent ; et precepit omnibus 
Aldermannis, ut ipsi in crastino summo mane facerent conve- 
nire Wardemota sua. Et ibidem homines de qualibet Warda in 
absentia Aldermanni eligerent de se ipsis triginta sex viros 
antea talliatos^ qui omnes eodem die circa horam primam venire 
deberent apud Sanctum Paulum coram ipso et aliis de consilio 
Regis illuc missuris. Et sic factum fuit. Quibus triginta sex 
viris in crastino venientibus in aula Episcopi Londonensis 
coram Johanne Maunsel, Henrico de Ba Justitiariis^ Henrico 
de Wengham, Cancellario, Philippo Lovel^ Thesaurario^ et aliis 
de consilio Regis, predictus Johannes dixit et precepit ex parte 
Domini Regis, ut ipsi jurati certificassent ipsos super dictis 
articulis. Qui dixerunt ^^ quod secundum leges Civitatis non 
deberent jurare in aliqua inquisitione, nisi ubi jacentur vita et 
membra, vel ad terram perdendam sive lucrandam.'' Sed tantum- 
modo conjurati per sacramentxmi, quod fecerunt Regi^ et in fide 
qua tenentur Deo et Regi, et ita multis altercationibus inter 
Justitiarios et Cives factis^ nichil factum fuit illo die. Et posi- 
tus est Civibus dies in crastino apud Gildhallam; quo die, 
veniente predicto Johanne Maunsel in Gildhallamj cum con- 
silio Regis; noluerunt iterum Cives assentire ad juramentxmi 
faciendum in inquisitione predicta. In crastinum autem, 
scilicet, die Mercurii ante Purificationem beate Marie, veniente 
Rege versus Westmonasterium^ exierunt Maior et Cives, sicut 
mos est^ ad salutandum ipsum usque ad Kniwtebrigge ; sed 
Rex misit ibidem quendam armigerum^ precipiens eis ne illi 
venirent in conspectu suo. Unde statim Cives, sentientes 
Regem motum in iram, redierunt ad propria, Rege non affato. 
Postea^ in Vigilia Purificationis, convenientibus Maiore et innu-

libertmtes eorum indempnes conservare ; aed pro emendatione 
Civitatis tuU ut inquirmtur, et per sacramentum, per quos C«im* 
muna sua ita ^ravata fuit in tallaf^iis et aliis tran&^ressionibus, et 
quod nuHus debet puniri nisi qui deliquerit, et lioc sine dampno

populus SHsensum, clamantes, ya ya, ad juramentum faciendum 
contra libertates suas, quas quidem i|)si miscrrimi non perqui- 
sierunt. Ivodem die statim dictua Johanncs cepit CivitAtem in

amotis, nullo tamen illorum in altquo convicto ; et trmdidit

per ipsos et consilia sua gravata et destructa est Civitas, 
et ex hoc, maxim^, quod per illos mutata est forma faci- 
endi tallagia^ quia rotulus de ultimo tallagio non fuit lec- 
tus in Gildhalle coram omni populo ad hoc summonito, 
•icut antea fieri solebat; sed statim facto tallagio, licentiati 
fuerunt omnes talliatores, dicto rotulo non sigillato. Et sic Maior 
et iUi mutaverunt rotulum pro voluntate sua ad commodum quo- 
rumdam etadaliorum jacturam.^^ Ad quod responsum fuit, '^quod 
aliquo tempore rotulus de tallagio solebat legi in Gildhalle coram 
omni populo, sed hoc omissum fuit tnnc temporis decem annis 
et amjdius transactis.'' Tandem^ multis objectionibus per Jus- 
titiarios factis et responsionibas per alios, defendunt ipsi vim et 
injuriam, et quod per ipsos non est mutatus modus talliandi, et 
per illos nuUus est gravatus in tallagio, nec deportatus ; et quod 
ultimum talliagium factum fuit per viros ad hoc per totam Com> 
munam electos et jnratos. Cujus talHagii summa redacta fuit in 
Bcriptis per talliatores, que scripta adhuc remanent penes Wil*

consilium illorum Civitas fuerit gravata in tallagiis vel aliis 
rebus, hoc defendunt et volunt defendere, et omne malefactum 
eis impositum, secundum leges et consuetudines Civitatis/* Et 
quesitum fuit a ceteris Aldermannis, qualis fuit consuetudo illo- 
rum in hoc casu ; qui, habito consilio, venientes coram Rege, 
dixerunt sicut dictum erat die precedenti, scilicet, "quod Cives 
Londoniarum debent se defendere versus Regem de transgres- 
sione per duodecim viros juratos de Civitate, et quod talis est 
consuetudo illorum/' Sed Rex, de hoc non contentus, precepit 
Vicccomitibus, ut in crastino fecissent convenire Folkesmote ad 
crucem Sancti Pauli, ubi missurus erat Johannes Maunsel, et alii 
de consilio suo ad inquirendum a Communa, si talis esset consue- 
tudo illorum. Quo die, scilicet die Martis, venerunt omnes 
Aldermanni et Cives ad crucem Sancti Pauli. Cum autem 
predicti sex viri occasionati a Rege intellexerunt per murmura- 
tionem populi, quod ipsi nollent advocare Aldermannos in re- 
sponso per illos facto coram Rege, ipsi accesserunt ad illos, qui 
missi a Rege erant, tunc existentes in domo cujusdam Canonici 
de Sancto Paulo, et dixerunt quod noluerunt contra Dominum 
Regem placitare ; sed posuerunt se in misericordia Domini 
Regis, precantes ut Rex faceret inquiri per quos vellet de Civi- 
tate, si ipsi essent in ahquo culpabiles de aliquo crimine, tamen 
salvis eis et aliis Civibus libertatibus suis. Qui noluerunt con- 
cedere eis aliquam inquisitionem. Illis vero in misericordia 
Regis existentibus, Johannes Mansel et alii a Domino Rege 
missi, venerunt ad crucem Sancti Pauli ; quorum unus, facto 
blando sermone et quasi predicando, promittens populo omnia 
jura eorum et libertates a Domino Rege illesas conservari, dixit 
" si ballivus vel ballivi eorum injuste illos tractati fuissent et 
multa mala et dampna eis et Civitati intulissent, supponi in 
tali casu, secundum legem Civitatis deberent se defendere versus 
Regem de secta sua per duodecim viros juratos, et versus con- 
cives suos per sex viros, et ita ab impositione illius transgrcs- 
sionis fore quieti?*' Ad quod responsum fuit, nullo tamen coUo-

Tunc temporis novi Aldennanni electi sunt per Wardas, ct 
positi in singulis Wardis illonim qui depositi fuerunt, sicut 
predictum est, excepto quod Warda que fuit predicti Amaldi 
filii Thedmari remansit in manu Maioris. Et sciendum est 
predictus Amaldus de nichilo fuit rectatus, nisi de statera ; cujus 
modus ponderandi correcta fuit per ipsum et per alios, sicut in 
hoc rotulo prenotatur. Sed ipse, plus odii fomite quam 
meritis suis exigentibus, inter alios fuit deputatus, sicut patet 
in sequentibus. Nam postea, die ante festum Sancti Leonardi, 
anno Domini Regis xliiij., in pleno folkesmoto ad crooem 
Sancti Pauli, coram Domino Rege et consilio suo, Domino 
Johanne Maunsel attestante, Regem esse oertificatum ipsum 
Amaldum iiijuste esse degradatum; et ipse fuit ad gratiam Do- 
mini Regis revocatus et in statum suum restitutus. 

Hoc anno agricultura defecit ; qua deficiente, fiames secuta 
est ita, quod homines de villis confluebant ad Civitatem pro 
cibo acquirendo, qua, fame convalescente, multa milia hominum 
periemnt ; et multa plura milia occubuissent fame, nisi bladum 
venisset tunc temporis de Alemannia. 

Hoc anno fuit illud insane Parlamentum apud Oxoniam, 7>e jMriamfnio 
circa festum Sancti Bamabe ; in quo Pftrlamento provisum ^-^**- 
fuit et ordinatum per aliquos Comites et Barones Anglie ad 
abolendum illaa malas consuetudines quibus regnum, tempore 
istius Regis, tamdiu et ultra modum fuerat oppressum et grava* 
turo, scilicet, per eundem Regem et alios potentissimos regni. 
Ad quod idem Rex, et etiam invitus, prebuit assensum et 
hoc juravit. Et ad hoc negotium ordinandum electi fuerunt 
Dominus Cantuariensis Archiepiscopus, Dominus Episoopus 
Wygorniensis, Dominus Rogerus Bigot Marescallus Comes 
Northffolchie, Dominus Ricardus de Clare Comes Olouvemie,

doque alibi, super usibus et consuetudinibus regni in melius

Civitate, ne aliquis de familia Regis nec alius aliquod caperent 
in Civitate, nisi pro voluntate venditorum, salva tamen recta 
prisa Domini Regis de vino, scilicet, de nave, que debet plenam 
consuetudinem, duo dolea vini pro xl. solidis. Et si quis con- 
tra hoc venire presumeret, et inde foret convictus, statim impri-

ad Sanctum Salvatorem, et associato secum Rogero de Tur-

itinerantes in Comitatu Surayhe, ubi quamplures ballivos et 
alios, qui convicti fuerant de transgressionibus factis subjectis 
suis, non solummodo amerciavit, sed fecit incarcerari tam cle- 
ricos quam laicos. £t, quidem, redemit aliquem pro viginti

parva causa ultra modum gravavit.

vatorem coram predictis Justitiariis, et defarentes secum cartas 
suas, dixenint quod non tenerentur placitare ibi, nec eatra 
muros Civitatis placitare voluerunt; sed, eitra formam placiti 
voluerunt recognoscere, quod bene liceret Vioeeomitibw Loci- 
doniarum capere consuetudines eitra predictam portam, ct etiam 
usque ad stapeUos ibidem sitos, quia tota aqua Tbamisie perti- 
net ad Civitatem, et sempcr pertinebat et versus mars usque ad 
novum gurgitem. Tandem multis altercationibus inter Juati- 
tiarios et Cives factls, Justitiarii fecerunt inquiri, licet Cives se in 
inquisitione non posuerunt, per sacramentnm duodecim miitum 
de Sureye, utrum Vicecomites Londoniarum aliquam conaoetu- 
dinem extra metas suas cepissent. Qui juiati dixerant quod 
predicti Vicecomites justc ibidem consuetudinem capere possent, 
quia usque ad predictos stapeUos totum pertinei ad Civitatem, 
i^ n<r«M. ct nullus aliquid juris habet in Thamiaia, uaque ad novua gur- 
gitem, nisi Civcs Londonianira. 

Post hoc predictus Justitiarius, associato aecmi predicto 
Rogeroy accessit ad Gildhalle Londoniarum, ct ibi tcnuit piacita

tores Civitatis, quotquot inventi fuerunt, cum panibua suis ; ita 
quod per paucos Cives convocatos, coram ipsis fuerunt panes 
ipsorum adjudicati, et illi quorum panes non ponderaverunt 
secundum assayum Civitatis non fuerunt positi in pillorio sicut 
antea solebant, sed pro voluntate predictorum Justitiarii et 
Comitis, contra antiquam consuetudinem Civitatis et totius 
regni, exaltati fuerunt in tumberella. 

Hoc anno in Octabis Innocentium, cum clamata fuit assisa 
de vino et cervisia in Civitate, proclamator Civitatis clamavit 
illam assisam tam extra portam petrinam sitam super Pontem 
Londoniarum quam alibi in suburbio Civitatis. 

Hoc anno Dominus Ricardus, Rex Alemannie, frater Domini 
Regis cum Regina sua et liberis suis veniens per mediam Fran- 
ciam transfretavit et applicuit apud Doveriam, et in Vigilia Puri- 
ficationis beate Marie venit Londoniis, Civitate optime attoniata 
et curtinata. 

Hoc anno die Lune ante festum Sancti Gregorii provisum fuit 
in Gildhalle inter Judicia, quando aliquis detulerit testamentum 
alicujus defuncti ad probandum in Hustingo, licet aliquis 
calumpnaverit aliquid juris in tenemento per illud testa- 
mentum legato, nonobstante illa calumpnia, statim capiatur illa 
probatio, salvo tamen jure cujuslibet. Nam illa probatio nichil 
ratificat, nisi ultimam voluntatem defuncti. Ita quod nonob- 
stante illa probatione, quilibet qui jus habet in tenemento per 
illud testamentum legato per alium quam per testatorem, 
poterit illud petere per breve de recto, vel per naturam bre- 
vis de introitu, sive per naturam brevis de morte antecessoris 
alterius quam testatoris, sive per queremoniam de intrusione ; 
set tamen qu&d queremonie, que fiunt sine breve, fiant infra 
terminum secundum consuetndines Civitatis usitatas. 

Hoc anno provisum fuit et statutum quod omnia placita de 
debitis teneantur coram Vicecomitibus tantum de Civibus Lon-

Dominicay consecratus est Henricus de Wengham a BcmefaciOf 
Cantuarie Archiepiscopo, in Epiicopatum Londoniamm, in cc-

Anno eodem, cum provisum fuerit per Dominnm Edwardum,

apud Wcstmunasterium a die Pasche in tres septimanaa, ct ipai 
proposuerunty et multi alii Comites et Baronea et militea com 
equis ct amiis infra muros Ciritatis hospitari, et per hoc maxi- 
mum dampnum et periculum Civibus et Ciritati posset generari, 
venit Dominus KicarduSy Kei Romanoram, apud Weatmonaa- 
terium in Septimana Pasche, et convocatis Maiore et quibusdam 
disicretis viris de Civitate, coram ipso et Capitali Justitiario et 
Dominu Philippo Uasset, habuemnt coUoquium ad illud pericu- 
lum evitaiidum. Ita quod tunc provisum fuit quod nec Domi* 
nus Kdwardus, nec dirtus Comes, nec aliquis aliua,dc quo aliqua 
suspiciu hal>eretur, infra muros Civitatis hospitarctur ; et ita 
factum est. Pruvisum fuit insuper quod omnea de quindedm

iiiti : ct qu(id uinnes p4irte Civitatis de nocte casent clauscy ct

in domo sua apud Westmonasterium, quod necesse non fuit ip- 
sum esse in Civitate, cum Dominus Rex ibi fuisset hospitatus. 
Postea Rex, moram faciens in Civitate per quindecim dies et 
amplius^ recessit inde apud Westmonasterium xvij. kalendas 
Junii, et datus est dies ad aliud Parlamentum habendum ad 
quindenam Sancti Johannis Baptiste. 

Postea recessit Rex Alemannie de Londoniis versus mare, sci- 
licet, in festo Sancti Botulfi, qui, tertia die post dictum festum^ 
posuit se in mari apud Doveriam. 

In dicto vero Parlamento Domino Rege et Baronibus Anglie

tates suas, et ipsos deliberaret latori litterarum Domini Regis,

deberent secundum leges Civitatis. Quibus litteris iropetratisy 
ecce ! rumores quod predicti prisones fuerunt apud Cherringe 
juxta Westmonasterium, ubi Maior et Ballivi Norehamptone 
illos adduxerunt. Quo audito, Maior Londoniarum misit ad 
illos quosdam Cives, deferentes predictum breve ; quo brevi 
lecto et intellecto, noluerunt adhuc illos prisones nuntiis Maioris 
liberandos assentire. Tunc, vero, Maior Londoniarum, cum 
innumerabili populo, accedens ad Regem, ostendit ei^ graviter 
conquerendo^ qualiter ipsi Ballivi in despectu regie majestatis 
et ad maximum dedecus Civitatis sue Londoniarum pro tertio 
brevi suo nichil facere voluerunt. Qui^ motus in iram, misit 
Petrum de Nevile^ quendam marescallum domus sue, ad Cher- 
ringa ; qui incontinenti adduxit prisones coram Rege, et liberati

ratione et responso Dominus Rex dedit eis diem ad habendum 
judicium in crastinum ; quod judicium dare et capere colluden*

livi de Norhamtona, coram Domino Rege in camera sua, presen- 
tibus ibi Capitali Justitiario^ Philippo Basset, Johanne Maunsel, 
Roberto Walerand, etaliis de consilio Domini Regis. Cives vero 
petierunt judicium suum respectatum inter ipsos et illos de 
Norhamtona de narratione sua et responso illorum. Illi autem 
de Norhamtona dixerunt quod nunquam responderint eis, sed 
Domino Regi, quia non tenentur placitare extra muros borgi

Regis qui nunc est xW^. Et Cives dicunt quod cmrtm ilU non 
del)et eis valere, quia non sunt in seisina de multis articuris in

dinis Anglie. Kt responderunt in nundinis Sancti Yvonis, 
Sancti Botulfi, Wintonie, et Lienne, et Stanfordie, et etiam hic 
partiti sunt de carta sua, respondendo ad narrationem Civium* 
Postea lcctum fuit recordum rotuli Justitiarii,in quo specificatur 
de responso facto Domino Regi pro contemptu brevium suonim, 
aperte et distincte irrotulatum. De narratione vero Civium ct 
responso Burgensium parum aut nichil scriptum est* Cives 
autem dixerunt, quod ipsi narraverunt versus illos, quod ipci 
injuste retinuerunt lil>cros homines suos, contra libertates Lon- 
doniarum, post receptionem brevium Domini Regis, et cataUa 
predictorum adhuc detinent, et de aliis transgressionibos versaa 
ipsos narraverunt, unde deteriorati sunt et dampnum habuenint 
ad valentiam decem librarum. Ad quod ipsi respondenint ita, 
quod partem recognoverunt et partem defenderunt, et de hoc ae 
ponunt sui>er recordum Episcoporum et Baronum, qui inter* 
fuerunt illo die, et petunt inde judicium. Petunt etiam judi* 
cium de nova carta Burgcnsium, que nuUius debet esse Taloris 
adversus cartas Civium, quas proferunt, scilicet, cartmm Henrid 
Kegis secundi, Ricardi Regis, Johannis Regis, et cartmm Domini 
Regis qui nunc est, et quod ipsi sunt in seisina de omnibus 
libertatibus in predictis cartis contentis. 

Tandem, multis altercationibus inter ipsos fiictis, habitum 
est coUoquium et consiUum coram Domino Rege per Barones 
suos, et quia Episcopi et alii qui interfuenint illo die, quo pbci- 
tum illud placitatum fuit, non fuerunt presentes, positum fuit 
Ulud judicium in respectu usque ad quinque septimanas post 
I^ascham. 

Circa idcm tempus, in quadragesima, PhiUppus de Ek>klaandey

fuit apud Wintoniam, fedt Capitalem Justitiarium suum de

est inquisitio in crastinum, et sic de die in diem per Maiorem et 
Yicecomites in Gildhalle, per duodecim viros juratos, de quibus 
nuUa fuit suspicio quantum ad istam feloniam, de singulis Wardis 
Londoniarum. Et postea universi Aldermanni fecerunt inqui- 
sitionem super hoc, quilibet in Wardemoto suo; unde qui 
indictati fuerunt vel accusati, capti fuerunt per Yicecomites et 
imprisonati, partem in Neugate et partem in Crepelgate. Et 
postea qui fuerunt de libertate Ciyitatis et qui potuerunt inve- 
nire plegios^ fuerunt deliberati per plegios. 

Hoc anno rediit Dominus Rex de Francia» et ponens se in mari 
apud Witsand cum Regina, applicuit apud Doveriam in Yigilia 
Sancti Thome Apostoli, et venit Londoniis, die Mercurii ante 
Epiphaniam. 

Hoc anno fuit magnum gelum et glacies valida, indpiens ih magmogti*,

et Tamisia ita fuit congelata, quod quandoque fiiit cooperta de 
rivo in rivum^ ita quod videbatur quod ipsa possit transiri 
pede et equo. 

Anno eodem septimo die Februarii, combusta sunt proprio 
igne suo parva aula Domini Regis apud Westmonasterium, 
Camera, et Capella, et Receptaculum, et alie plures domus 
officiales. 

Hoc anno, ante Cathedram Sancti Petri, ostenderunt Maior 
et Cives Londoniarum Domino Philippo Basset, Justitiario 
Anglis, et aliis de consilio Domini R^s apud West- 
monasterium, quod Constabularius Turris voluit occupare con- 
tra iilos libertates suas, arestando in Thamisia naves ante 
Turrim, et capiendo prisas de blado et aliis rebus, antequam 
venirent ad portum ; dicentes, quod ipse tunc temporis fecit 
arestare navem Thome de Basinges cum frumento ante Turrim,

Et e converso, parum aut nichil Aldermannis seu Magnatibus 
Civitatis super hoc consultis ; sed f uerunt ipsi, quasi non essent. 
Iste populus ita per hoc erat elatus et superbia inflatus, quod 
tempore perturbationis regni, de qua superius mentio facta est, 
ipsi fecerunt de se conventiculas, et per centenos et miUenos 
juramento confederati sunt, sub quodam colore pacem obser- 
vandi, qui manifeste fuerunt pacis perturbatores. Nam cum 
Barones tantummodo super illos, qui predicta statuta infringere 
voluerunt, militassent, et bona talium diripuissent, et hoc de 
die, isti de nocte domos Caurainium et aUorum, qui non fue- 
runt contra statuta predicta, in Civitate fregerunt et bona in 
predictis domibus inventa violenter asportaverunt, et multa alia 
illicita fecerunt. lilos vero Maior tepide redaiguebatur.

turas amoverunt, ct aliquas post prandium ; et hoc non fecerunt 
solummodo amovendi illas, sed occasione meremiom et alia ibi 
inventa asportandi. 

Postea, in crastino Sancte Margarete missum est brere Do- 
mini Regis Maiori ct Civibus, in quo, lecto in Gildhalle, 
tineljatur, quod ilia dissensio, que fuit inter Kegem et Baroi 
fiiit pacificata, et prccepit Rex, quod pax sua infra Civitatem ct

Postea in vigilia Sancti Jacobi recesserant etiam Barones

Postea Dominus Rez rediens de partibus transmarinis venit rv». taUmd. 
in Angliam. 

Barones vero non contempti de arbitrio predicti Regis 
Francie fuerunt, qui statim militaverunt in Marchia Wallie 
super Rogerum de Mortuo Mari, et omnia castra sua proster- 
nerunt, et terras suas depredaverunt, et maneria et villas com- 
busserunt; ad cujus succursum Dominus Edwardus in manu 
valida veniens, fere captus fuit. £t tunc, iterum captum est 
parlamentum apud Oxoniam inter Dominum Regem et predic- 
tos Barones. Londonienses autem et Barones de Quinque Por- 
tubus, et fere omnis communa mediocris populi regni Anglie, 
qui vero non posuerunt se super Regem Frande, penitus arbi- 
trium suum contradixerunt. 

Unde Londonienses fecerunt de se ipsis Constabularium, 
scilicet, Thomam de Piwelesdona, et Marescallum, scilicet, Ste- 
phanum Buckerel, ad quorum summonitionem, audita magna 
cloca Sancti Pauli, omnes ^e civitate exire deberent, et non 
aliter, muniti tam de nocte quam de die, bene armati, sequentes 
vexilla dictorum Constabularii et Marescalli ubicumque illos 
ducere voluissent. Postea, Hugo le Despenser, Justitiarius, qui 
tunc custodiebat Turrim cum innumerabili populo Londonien- 
sium, exierunt a civitate, sequendo vexilla predictorum Con- j)^ ctmhnstumM 
stabularii et Marescalli, et nesciebant quo ire debereut, vel ad <*• THUworikt. 
quid faciendum ; qui ducti sunt usque ad Tstleworthe et ibidem 
prostraverunt et combusserunt Manerium Regis Alemanie, et 
omnia bona ibi inventa deprcdaverunt, et molendina ac vivaria 
sua fregerunt et combusserunt, nuUis treugis observatis, dum 
predictum parlamentum steterit. £t hoc fuit initium dolorum, 
et origo mortalis guerre, per quam tot maneria combusta sunt, 
et tot hominesy divites et pauperes, depredati^ et tot mille

Domino Edwardo, xxv. barones vexilla portantes vel capti sunt 
vel occisi ; quidam tamen barones de exercitu Regis ponentes 
se in fugam, evaserunt. 

Memorandum, quod nocte illa inter Regem et Barones et 
suoso extitit provisum et ordinatum, quod providentie Oxonie 
starent inconcusse, et si quid ex eis foret corrigendum, per qua- 
tuor nobiliores Anglie episcopos, seu magnates^ penitus corri- 
gerctur ; et si dissentio aliqua foret inter ipsos, ita quod nullo 
modo concordes fieri possent, tunc staretur veredicto Comitis 
Andegavie et Ducis Burgundie, si major pars Baronum ad hoc 
consentire voluisset. Et ad hanc provisionem fideliter obser- 
vandam, predicti duo Reges suos primogenitos obsides et pri-

in Londoniis, et Dominus Rex cum suis, et Rex Alemannie et 
multi prisones, qui capti fuerunt in prelio predicto, Domino Ed- 
wardo et Domino Henrico de Alemannia, qui tunt obsides, ut 
dictum est, positis in custodia in castro Doverie. Rex vero 
Alemannie, et quamplures alii prisones positi sunt in Turrim

ceptis Maiore, Thoma de Piwelesdon, Michaele Thovi, Ste- 
phano Bugerel, Johanne de Flete, quorum corpora Rex dedit 
Domino Edwardo, qui remanserunt in Turri. 

Postea Dominus Rex, recedens de Windleshores, venit Lon- 
doniis, vocans Cives inimicos suos, et dedit plus quam sexaginta 
domos Civium, iUis cum tota familia sua inde ejectis ; dedit 
similiter omnia bona Civium, que habuerunt extra Civitatem, 
ut in Lenna, Gememue, et aliis portubus maris. Cepit etiam 
omnes terras eorum foraneas in manu sua, et omnia bona ibi- 
dem inventa destruxit et vastavit. Tunc factus est Custos 
Civitatis dominus Hugo filius Otonis, Constabularius Turris, 
et vocatus est Senescallus, qui constituit sub se duos Ballivos, 
scilicet Johannem Addrien et Walterum Hervi, qui, loco Vice- 
comitum, custodient Civitatem. 

Postea Cives predicti, qui fuerunt in balliva de Windleshores, 
per licentiam Domini Regis et filii sui deliberati sunt et vene- 
runt omnes ad Londonias, die Jovis proxima post festum Sancti 
Luce Ewangeliste, exceptis Ricardo Bonaventure, Simone de 
Hadestoke, Willielmo de Kent, et Eadmundo de Esex, qui re- 
manserunt, et Willielmo de Glouvemia. 

Illis temporibus fecit Dominus Rex capi obsides a plusquam 
scxaginta Civibus pro securitate pads, qui positi sunt in Tur- 
rim ; et eodem tempore fecit Rex affiiri Cives, ut ipsi fecissent 
finem versus eum pro transgressione eorum. Qui, habito collo- 
quio, responderunt quod Cives non equaliter transgressi sunt. 
Quidam enim scmper fuemnt ad pacem Domini Regis, quos 
ipse tunc temporis vocavit amicos suos. Quidam autem adhe-

Tunc minutus populus erezit se^ vocans se Communam 
Civitatis^ sicut fuit tempore Comitis Lieicestrie, et habuit 
primam vocem in Civitate ; ita quod quamplures de Civitate, 
et etiam de Magnatibus^ per ipsos fuerunt capti et in custodia 
Comitis positi ; quia ipsi fuerunt manifeste ad fidcm Domini 
Regis^ quorum bona per Comitem vel sequestrata fuerunt vel

Leycestriey venerunt in Civitatem^ et gratis recepti sunt^ et

fuerunt deliberati. 

Postea^ die Mercurii post clausum Pasche, inhibuit Legatus, 
ne campane pulsarentur in Civitate^ et ne divina celebrarentur 
cum cantu ; set sub silentio^ hostiis ecclesiarum clausis, ne 
inimici Regis, qui vocati sunt exheredati, interfuissent ad divina 
audienda. 

Postca, tribus septimanis post Pascha peractis, venit Dom-

in abbatia monachorum ; et cito post Legatus recessit a Turri 
et hospitatus est in eadem Abbathia, ubi fecit stabulum equis

prostemendum fossatum^ quod Comes iieri fecit, ita qood non 
appareret locus ejus. 

Memorandum, quod pax facta fuit inter Dominum Regem et 
Comitem Glouvemie in forma subscripta ; videlicet, quod 
Dominus Rex remisit illi et omnibus de familia, societate et 
amitia sua, et omnibus Londoniensibus omnem iram, rancorem et 
indignationem et omnem malam voluntatem, quam habuit ver- 
sus eos occasione transgressionum et aliarum rerum per eos fac- 
tarum in terra vel in aqua^ postquam dictus Comes recesserat 
ultimo a Wallia, et dum moram fecit in Civitate. Et quod 
Dominus Rex acquietabit omnes illos versus omnes gentes, et 
non permittet aliquem illorum occasionari vel appellari ratione 
predictarum transgressionum ; excepto tamen quod mercatores, 
qui non intromiserunt se de gwerra, habeant plenam actionem 
ad recuperandum tantummodo catalla sua, sine misericordia 
Domini Regis, per legem terre. Et quod terre, domus et red- 
ditus, /qui dati sunt, tam per Regem quam per Comitem, post/o. 103 1«. 
predictum recessum Comitis de Wallia, omnino revocentur. Dic- 
tus vero Comes obligavit se sacramento prestito, quod non 
movebit gwerram versus Dominum Regem, et inde fecit litteras, 
et invenit plegios sub pena decem miUium marcarum. Et hec 
pena locum habeat, quousque sciatur a Domino Papa, si illa 
pena ei sufficiens videatur, et quicquid Dominus Papa super 
hoc ordinaverit, dictus Comes tenetur observare. Et bec or- 
dinatio debet fieri infra festum Purificationis beate Marie 
proximo ventumm. 

Tunc temporis remisit Dominus Rex Londoniensibus omnem 
malam voluntatem, quam habuit versus eos occasione predicta
